Thanks, Chief! I plan to do it the way as described, but if the fixture protrudes a little, it will be exposed without a top, so I will go buy a carpenter vise, and hack the plate down to size and drill two holes in it. Joey, I already asked a local hardware store dude-girl-owner regarding use of my 4.5 grinder as a circular saw, and I was told it's been done but advised against it because of the rpms on the grinder are way more than a circular saw. I sold my vice and my circular saw at a flea market. I went a little crazy. That was before I decided to bring my truck to AK.
