Question Question on grinding guide feet...

I get how you grind the feet down to ensure a tangent curve to the blank on the top sides of the feet - primarily for thread wrap transition purposes... what grinding / finishing is necessary on the underside if any?

Logically, the underside would be free of imperfections and it's interior contour would be free of stress points against the blank...
