Thanks for the reply Markaoros, I’ll see if I can make a reasonable taper on this preform then, was avoiding using wax because I thought it would be weaker but if the extra area and lack of deflection makes up for that, then good.

I don’t really recommend cutting Backgammon in quartz, as tilt performance can be an issue, but I’ll be happy to see what you end up with.

This tapering technique should be ideal for Epimetheus, given the preform it uses. If you want to PM me those questions I’ld be happy to answer them as well as I can.
