OK let me see if I understand this~ you want to glue the tile to the rock and then orient the tile to the BOTTOM in the clamp, cutting through the rock and the tile?  I am not sure why you would want to do this (if I perceive the question correctly). 

I was just overthinking the whole process, lol. My thought was to still have the entire rock cut (the tile piece would be longer than the rock and the unglued section would be clamped in the vise) so the entire rock could be cut also). Just my usual way of wasting time trying to re-invent the wheel! I need to remember, if it ain't broke (or in this case if a method has worked for years) don't try to fix it. Listen to the experts!
