Making a new ground glass screen

broke my 10X8 ground glass screen (very easily) so decided to

make a new oneout of 3mm (rather than 2)

After what seemed ages of grinding with stone polishing powder (was probably less than 10 mins)

rinsing with water then continuing on any missing areas - nearly there
Need to go over it with a finer grade powder now.
