WOW six hours for a 12.5 inch mirror... hope i'm that lucky, started with the pads this evening, did 1 hour,can see the difference thats for sure, its still got the haze but its even all the way through...must be doing something right(knock on wood) for a change,i heard it was faster but never thought it would be that much...well, i might finish this mirror before christmas after all. Thanks Bob, i'm sure i will have more questions in the figuring and parabolizing stages...Hope you are around. Thanks again.
