Are you talking about a magnetic plate base? I would suspect that Bunting can make them to whatever height you require.

Yes, Bunting will grind to whatever height is needed. The bases are made at one inch and ground down from there. Most of my sales in recent years have been from folks with foreign made imported presses (eg., F.A.G. at .928) or those who have presses originally made for galley use (.968 sans bed plate). Not your Boxcar/Elum/ etc. standard faire. but then, how would they know?


There are also several European manufacturers of similar bases. PPLetterpress has links to these.
