Step 1: Placing the Ruler Part

Take one bigger part that is square cut and put clamps over it and the part that you want to cut. Be careful when placing ruler part that you put in on the line of the sawing cause if you put it 1 mm to the line your part will be shorter for 1 mm because of the saw thickness. I advice you to draw two lines, one cutting line and another 1 mm apart. So you can align the ruler part directly over the line and other line as a guide for a straight angle. Check everything with a square ruler and start cutting slowly. Don't make too much force, just lean at the ruler part and saw easily.

Step 2: Result

You will get a straight cut inshaellah without cutting mistakes and losing too much time on the vise. It is even better if you have aluminum or a steel square part to use it as a ruler just watch at your saw if it is sensitive.
