Ah, that's a bit tricky - I try and do it optically. If you look down the blade at the pipe, with the mouth of the ratcheting cutter facing up to make sure that it is as straight possible, then go sooo slow when making the cut, gently making adjustments to the pipe position in the ratcheting vice as it closes, you can get a pretty straight cut. Seriously, go slow - PVC is soft and easy to cut, but things get sloppy if you work to quickly.
