cutting steel soffit panels

I have a couple houses worth of soffit panels to cut so quite a few. Been doing it the hard way with a framing square, pencil and aviation snips. Is there an easy way to cut assuring same length and squareness of cut??? ???

cutting steel soffit panels

Search "siding cutting table". I made my own with plywood, 2x4's and a couple short pieces of furring strip. Circ saw rides on rails above soffit material.

Dont have a pic so you'll have to use your imagination.
