    Surface Grinder

    I second this. I just got one and have yet to explore all it's functionality but it's amazing. If you get one, see if they can lathe you down an aluminum tracking wheel instead of the contact wheel you can get. The metal wheel has way less rounding at the edges.

    Bench top surface grinder

    Nice! I would find the right recommended wheel for that and grind the table myself. You want it perfectly flat and Trammed/square to the wheel itself, milling it could work though to get it close then you wouldn't have go grind as much.

    So I need a camera!!

    Randy is spot on... Although I think a dslr can be beneficial if you put in the time to learn it (esp with video). This was done with lights and a light box (and black velvet), shot on my pixel and edited.
