    Sorry, Phil. I didn't realize you were listening. Cover your ears for this.

    (whispering so Phil doesn't hear...) I'll stick by my description of shiny in weldor's company. Mirror-like doesn't quite fit unless you are using a fine grit flap-disk. Having a certain luster? Maybe. No, clean steel freshly hit with a grinder is shiny.

    Phil, you can uncover your ears now. Phil. PHIL. PHIL!!!!

        I'll define the "Trades" as machinists / tool-makers / pattern-makers /
        even millwrites / who are often fine machinsts.

        Shiny!
        Unless you are dealing with Chrome, or pollished surfaces,
        always avoid using the term "Shiny" to connotate possitive attributes
        to the surfaces of your machining / grinding / what-ever.
        And especially "flatness" !!
        Never never never, use shiny to describe a result you are
        referring to as addaquitely "flat".

        You might as well forget to ware pants, or have spinach on your chin.
        Shiny in practicing reality has absolutely nothing to do with
        the accuracy of generated surfaces.

        Infact often in means that the surface-producing tool,
        is not what it should be. Surface-grinding, Blanchard grinding,
        even turning in many alloys, are aplications where shiny
        is really a finger-print that indentifies a crime.

        Shiny is nearly always the result of burnishing,
        or on a microscopic level smearing of the surface.
        I could go on and on, but I'm boring even myself.

        Just a heads up.
        I have often revealed my innocent naievaty, in the world of welding,
        careing not, because it's more important to me to learn the facts.
        But when you are in mixed company, keep shiny in your watch-pocket.
        You'll be glad you did.

        Have a Good Week.

        WTF...hehe!

        Ok not shiny, how about clean?? Conducive to a surface good for welding?

          Pends on what Yer Weld'n.

          Keep hit'n a table with a side gringer at random. Fine for a sow's ear.
          Want to do a silk purse, table needs ta be flat!

          No more effort to get it clean & flat,
          than do'n some nice gentel hill's and valleys. If yer into landscapes.

          Cheers

          The thing that amazes me is the abillity that some folks have to,
          Shed any expantion of what they allready think they know.

          Or "Will Rogers" "what they know that just ain't so."
          Man it's gorgeous out-side today, See Ya.

            Naa, doesn't even need to be flat or close, the plate is good enough for me. I just do rough stuff, jeep stuff. Need a rugged surface, precision isn't key. HOWEVER, I need it clean enough that I can tack to for fab work or place the ground clamp on the edge and toss my work somewhere on the table and weld away. That kind of "shiny"
