With this jig, you rest the circular saw on the foot of the guide getting a straight start cutting a 90 degree cut,
using the sliding bolt you can set any angle you want to cut.
you can easily clamp the jig guide to the piece to be cut.

The picture has a Bronze Roman spear head from the 1st century Israel. It might even have been mounted on a legionaries Pilum. It is exactly the classical size. The square chisel pointed arrowheads on the left are Greek iron armor piercing military points from the BCE classical period. The Obsidian arrowheads on the right are Egyptian, from centuries before Christ.
