You'd be suprised how uneven the surface of glass is. Smooth it is, but it's just not as flat as you'd think. I surface ground(within 0.0005"!) a piece of 1/2" thick tool steel for my lapping pleasures, it works quite good.

But I'm a perfectionist, glass should work fine for everyone else.
I just use the kitchen worktop. Its plenty flat enough for heatsinks.

I only go down to 800 grit paper as well. Some people go all the way to 2000 and get a mirrir finish..but I dont think you will see any better cooling so why bother ?
No longer Epox Tech.

Best of luck in the future all my friends.
