Hi steel experts--
Just went to pick up my A36 1/2" steel plates from local shop and when I asked them to clean them up and remove mill scale for me, they really did. They machine-buffed (or scraped?) them and now they're shiny metal...Is this a good thing, or a bad thing? And if it's okay, what effect will that have instead of them looking like I see here..and should I also oil them and season them as I would cast-iron..or am I heading back to the shop to ask (and pay) for a re-make? I could use some good advice here from those who know.
