Just buy a piece of the proper size RCP and cut what you need. a piece of inner diameter 24" RCP is about 350.00. or you can buy the 3" thick extensions rings for like 20 a piece.

I didn't have a cell phone until I opened up 2 years ago. Before that I'd get home to check for messages.

Some employers gave me hell because I didn't have a cell but it was even worse if you had one because they'd call you constantly micromanaging and having guys run around all day. My last employer I had a cell and he did all that plus wasting my evenings with freaking endless texts until 1 in the morning. I found out this summer he was on cocaine everyday ...

If it's a real C.I. manhole the suppliers of the structures around here offer concrete extension rings in 1" thickness increments to raise them.
