I remember this one where someone tried this and had to use tape to fix the light leaks and this one I remember quite well and may be worth the try if you have the tools and the penitence for it.

Thanks for the links, they helped stir up some ideas. The reason I want to cut this down to size and slide it into my holder is that I'd like the versatility to be able to stack with a grad if I'd like. Otherwise I'll simply do as DarklingSmilie (above) and glue it to an adapter ring.

Using a diamond wheel to cut, slowly, should there be any problems?

What material should I use as a glued on seal that will take the sliding in and out?

At the beach with the weliding glass in front of a very sharp Cosina 24mm/2.8 FD converted to EOS EF.

Not a pronounced effect here but I like the pic

This one makes the image look post-apocalyptic.

So a couple questions, I pulled out my #12 shade home made filter this weekend to really give it a good try. I came out with some (IMO) good images. The one posted below is the only one I have with me at work.

So I had glued a ring adapter onto the glass, then screwed it onto the lens ... well that became a PITA real fast. My process was, set up, compose, AF, switch to MF, then very carefully scew on the filter and repeate a few times as I would slip and move the focusing ring just a little :(

Fast forward to this morning and I have a knock off Cokin P holder in my Amazon cart. Got me to thinking if I am going to use welding glass for a 12 stop (this is close to what I calculated out it out to), maybe I could use a less dark glass for something a little "softer" has anyone tried something not as potent as a #12 shade glass?
