Does anyone Know how much the MK1 Heatbed expands when hot?
How much does it swell up,

Off hand, no, but you can calculate much of it by using the thermal expansion values for FR4, or simply measure it using a micrometer or dial caliper (probably the latter is the more accurate way).

Thanks, I was working on inlaying the MK1's into a sub bed and was thinking of going flush,
but after carefull thought I spring loaded the inlays to account for the thermal expansion of both materials.
