I was paging thru a "Jigs and Fixtures" book a few days ago. A well
published writer (Engler? Nick Engler?) said he invested in a marble slab
used for cookie dough from a kitchen supply store for his scary sharp
sharpening. His thought was it was plenty thick, plenty stable and cheeeep!
The glass is both too thin and not as flat as plate glass. Plate glass
is made by a special process that produces an extremely flat surface.
I would also be worried about the window glass breaking under the
pressure of sharpening, even with appriopriate backing.
Stick with plate glass. It's cheap enough in size pieces you need.
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.
Never get your philosophy from some guy who ended up in the looney bin.
