    There is no such thing.  Just go buy the right sized replacement part or a hot plate.

    Tin snips?Cutting torch & angle grinder?

      Otherwise you get a 6 for a 6, so take an old one with you because the plug in is different with different stoves.  Get EXACTLY THE SIZE YOU NEED.

    So much simpler.

    no.  the larger element won't fit into the opening.

    You never want to modify a stove to be something that it wasn't intended to be. the wire that's run inside the stove is made for a 6-in element not an 8-in element modifying the hole might just guarantee you a fire!
