Default lapping qusetion

i'm planning on lapping the cpu for my next build and i know that to lap a cpu you need a flat suface (like a sheet of glass) so i was wonering, would it work to do it on one of the pieces of glass that goes over a picture (like in a picture frame) because i dont have just a sheet of glass laying around

Pieces of glass is the best surface to do it on.

I had done my share of lapping in the past and if u have $10-$20 to spend this is the best website to get the stuff from.


Extra Large Glass Lapping Plate (9” x 11”, ¼” thick) $8.00
