Just finished fabricating my own FVB. Now all that's left is to test and find an angle calculator that will work with it..

Where can one source rock hard wheels for a t4 these days?

A word on home-made FVBs.
4 months ago we started CNC machining the FVB base, and have tolerances tight.
If your self-made FVB does not have the base of the same thickness as ours or legs in the wrong position, you will be getting less accurate results, and all the man-hours we've put into this software improvement will be wasted as you will not be getting better deburring and sharpness with it.
I'll be stopping making custom applets for home-made FVBs because of that, because formulas by themselves will never match the algorithm fine-tuned to our particular FVB make.

Could you post or send me the measurements/print to the FVB so I can fabricate my own in our machine shop?
