Ok thanks guys... I was really only looking for a ballpark guess anyway. I've been reading about all this a lot lately and there just seems to be a lot of different opinions over the matter. I'm planning on smoothing everything out in there (no sharp edges) and I'm also wondering... Is smothing the edges of the falve face bad for the valves? I thought the margin needed to be a certain thickness to keep from overheating and burning up the valve?
