I very carefully lay out my cut lines using masking tape on at least three sides. At which point I pick up my cutting tool of choice and attempt to follow that set of markings. After doing the frame mod for the '32 style gas tank then building my exhaust system have gotten to the point of excellence where I can cut straight at least 50% of the time. Often a couple percent more. The other 48-50% - you really don't want to know about those cuts but I can say that with a straight face (well kinda) at one time I kept the recycle station steel scrap bin well stocked
