I have been doing a lot of layout work and got a catalog from MSC the other day with some stuff I wanted on sale. I got an 8" surface gage, an angle plate and a matched set of V blocks for under $100.00, a peice of marble tile works as a surface plate.

Out of curiousity, how flat is that tile? The majority of my work tables are surface ground within .005", but the granite slabs typically used for this kind of work are lapped to .0001" or better.

I am just guessing but I would say within .001"

Good to know, I've got a new toy and I need to check tool lengths so they can be programmed in.
