Dave -- any metal fab shops out your way? I would think someone with the right equipment could cut, weld and drill an adapter like that for you.
Metal fab shops typically have lots of scraps in different thicknesses, so chances are scoring a plate in adequate thickness will be pretty easy. Might be best to drive to one or two shops and talk to them. If nothing else, you might score the material and be on your own for the fab work in order to get it up and running as quickly as possible.
On a more positive note I just mounted up a pyrocerm plate to the platen on my grinder and it looks promising for speed at least. Looks like more work is done with less effort. I did see some blue static sparks though. I guess time will tell if I stick with this or not.
I have a great (maybe the greatest ever) local industrial scrap yard in town here that I'm thinking of hitting up tomorrow. This place has just about anything a person could wish for in just about any configuration plus they've got a warehouse full of drill presses and machine shop equipment to mull over. There's bound to be something I can make work.
