I recognized the difficulty in getting a nice clean cut without a jig so I did my research and ended up with this.

I already had the angle grinder, hole saw, scrap 2x4 and zip ties. I just needed to get a new cutoff disc and I was in business. I have cut 2 tops off so far and the both turned out great. I went back with the dremel to sand off the burs.

It's a bit late to build a jig that works off the center opening, it's already cut off.

You can see the hole isn't exactly "round" although it's not terrible. From what they said, it was cutting relatively correct until the end. They drilled 2 holes in the top and used some sort of mechanical "nibbler" to cut through it.
