    Ok how do you guys do it? I have a quote for this is granite that I need to price but how is it done or "simply" done. Thinking cutting with bridge saw the groves and just insetting the ss steel. Or is there another way? How do you account for the curve of the blade once you come to an end? Have done it in solid surface and that's simple. Granite not so.  Any help would be great.

    Probably too late to help you, but here are a couple of solutions:

    1) Bridge saw as you stated, then use a dremel and small diamond bits to square up the ends for the rails.
    2) Grind the ends of the rails to fit the curve left from the saw blade. Potential problems by discoloring or deforming the metal due to heat.
