I Want to buy a toolroom grade-B Granite Surface Plate. I have always used High Quality Brand Names Like Starrett, Challenge, ZEISS etc. at my place of employment. I have surfed ebay for two weeks and placed bids on many different ones including some (Gulp) "imports". I have not won any bids because it seems that the winning offer is at least always 75% of what new plates cost and the freight is killing me from the Lone Star or Golden State to Hoosier land. Any luck with Import Plates from discount suppliers like J&L, Enco, Travers Tool? Looking for 18"X 24"X 3"or4". Sure would like to here some feed back from fellows like yourself who know. Thanks in advance, Brett.
