    I had no idea what a "vlakplaat" is so I googled the word and said translate to English.
    then I google "surface plate south Africa" and it gave me metgran.
    all this took 30 seconds.

    now you mission, if you choose to accept, is to google the following " metal surface plate south Africa"

    Johan daar is baie toepassings. 'n Vlakplaat is 'n baie akkurate en uiters stewige plat oppervlak waarop akkurate instrumente ge yk kan word. Of as jy iets baie presies wil afwerk op 'n horisontale vlak kan jy dit op 'n vlakplaat skuur met natuurlik die geskikte skuurpapier daaronder wat oor die vlakplaat gespan is. Dis sommer so uit die vuis. Daar is ook ander toepassings.

    Why would you want to use a metal surface plate? The granite ones dont rust,dont pick up burrs. They are more accurate and stable.
    Best of all if they dont have to be calibrated,a cut out of a granite kitchen top works well and is free.

    Have you come right? If not, an option is to buy a piece of heavy plate, 30 - 50mm and have it surface ground at an engineering shop.

    I guess its what the OP needs it for. But I suspect a free piece of cut out granite would do a better job. Surface grinders dont make things truelly flat. The metal you choose would play a big role in this too.Cast iron would be better as it doesnt have to be stress relieved. The magnet on the surface grinder ,if the metal is not thick enough would distort the piece.

    Another option is to surface grind it,bang it on an accurate surface plate after blueing it in and then scraping it flat. You will be shocked how out of true a surface ground piece of metal is.Off course for us mere mortals it would seem very flat.

    Plunger, to be very honest I can't remember what it was I needed it for! I know I wanted to face grind something at the time and thought of a surface plate (something I last used as an appy) but only had the Afrikaans name. But the thread responses did put me onto some interesting searches, so not all is lost!

    In a push, a piece of thick glass will do. I think anything over 10 or 15 mm is float glass and it is perfectly flat and suitable if properly supported for a basic surface plate.
