Post Patch panels and cutting?

I've read a few articles that said the best way to install a patch panel is to clamp the new panel OVER the existing panel and cut through BOTH pieces of metal..this will give you an exact fit in which you can BUTT the new metal against the old (after removing the rusted stuff you just cut out.

Question of the day is...what's the best way of cutting STRAIGHT? I guess at the end of the day it doesn't matter, if both pieces match up perfectly...but I'd much rather cut straight than zig zag across my door.

Any tips on this?
