Straight Cuts using a NWSL Chopper


I'm working on the excellent Boaz resin flatcar kits and wanted to get some
feedback on making consistently straight cuts for the styrene channel
material for the stake pockets. I use an NWSL Chopper and it seems no matter
what I do, the blade deflects when I make a cut and the pieces are not
straight. Is there some better technique or am I missing some procedure using
the Chopper. This is a problem for me using both the older model with the
hardboard base or the newer models with the plastic mat base.
