"No Ron, I simply cut, grind, and polish/figure."
I've not cut, but I have ground and polished two mirrors, a 6" and a 10" and I can honestly say I would not use the word "simply" to describe the process. Not hard, but not simple either.
A machine would have been fantastic!
I did use the word *Loosely*
However....Cutting is time consuming(not hard), and grinding is time consuming(not hard), and polishing is tricky(not hard), and figuring is challenging......To say the least.
