Re: preparing cast iron for sharpening plates

E Phillip Smith
You should have seen the original shipment of raw cast iron. It was six bars long enough to be split in have and make a dozen lapping plates. It was wrapped in cardboard and tapped to make a cube, no padding or box. Label slapped on and shipped by UPS. I always wondered how much stuff it broke in transit.
