The videos showed glass tables, but there were definitely people saying they put their glass on a sturdy workbench.

I called the machine shop to make sure that I had the right place. They said $50 plus tax and a day or two. I parked in front of the sign saying "Office," not seeing the sign pointing to the far side of the building.

No problem! It is just 1.6 liters! It is just aluminum!

Yeah, I will be parking at the other end next time.

In-person they said $65, then $85, and I left before he raised it again.

The center of the head was off 0.003 inches. I could only fit my straight edge down the center of the block, but I could not fit my 0.0015 shim under the straight edge.

I did not want to remove the rest of the engine, haul that around, and pay to have it machined!
