    Edge Pro doesn't ship the leveling kit internationally because of how much it costs to ship. If your outside of the US just get some Sic powder, 60-240 grit, and a flat plate that is at least 8" x 10". Keep in mind that grinding on your flat plate like this is going to wear it so when lapping your stones try to wear the plate flat with figure 8 motions. You want about a teaspoon of abrasive and just enough water to wet it out, the drier it is the more aggressive it cuts. I use a tile of Cambria countertop material, think man made stone, for my lapping plate because I have a few around.

    If you go to a window and door place you can get them to order you in a peace of tempered glass that's what I did it's more durable then regular glass and you won't have to worry about it breaking if you push to hard.

    Or go to a stone fabricator and get a couple pieces of their garbage for free.

    Or go dumpster diving at a tile store. Or buy tile "orphens" at the tile store. Orphens are the last tiles left of the last batch and don't match the new batch/shipment of tile. When I say tile I pretty much mean granite tile but porcelain ceramic would be damn good because it is so hard and wear resistant. Porcelain tile is about $3 a square foot and many are flat enough.

    Oh okay great. And put SiC on it? What exactly is SiC and does the d stand for carbide or something else?

    Thanks guys,

    Sic is short for silicon carbide.
