Hiyah! Im wanting to start grinding a 254mm mirror, but cant really afford a pyrex blank. Locally the thickest glass i will be able to source is 19mm, but its out of stock everywhere, and will be for the next month or two. Is it possible to bond two 12 or 15 mm thick disks together and then make a mirror out of that? If so, what to use as an adhesive? Any advice appreciated.
