the issue there is it would be a PITA to rip to size and when you try to get it tight enough it would rip more easily. poking 30-40 holes doesnt take very long and you can control heat management some with it

they are made to fit on the top of a bowl, and while any fibers coming off the fiber glass would be horrid, the heat would matter not on it

usually they are sold with a bowl (usually a glass one) but i think some places will custom them to fit. honestly though if you just go to a local lamp worker you can get them to make you one too, all you need is a flat disk with a hole in the middle and usually the hole sticks up slightly.

i think MNH has a sells them with bowls and i think they will custom you one but i dont remember for sure
