Kiefer, I notice that to date you have 141 views with no comments. I don’t know why, but I am going to jump in here and show how dumb I am. What is this. what does it do, and how does it do it. Sorry, I just do not get it.

ok maybe i did not explain this very good
after all i am not a professor
but let’s try
if i hold the saw blade in place with screws to the underside of the workpiece and also hold it in place with the pivot ( 5/8 ball bearing ) and the ballcatch on the cross slide the the workpiece cant move
i make the first cut in this posiition
the second cut is in the case of a octagon at 45 degree to the first cut
therefore i rotate the sawblade 3 teeth on the ball catch ! on a 24 tooth blade the teeth are at 15 degree spacing
3 teeth=45 degree
look at the slide and clamp which holds a block at the underside
this determins the width of cut
the pics may
help

Though I like the concept a lot, that 3rd picture is too scary close to the sawblade. It seems that it wouldn’t take too much to have metal on metal contact if it came loose in any way. (Maybe it’s just the angle of the camera that you took the picture at.)

Could you do the same thing with a smaller diameter sawblade used for the stationary “pattern” blade? (for lack of a better term.) Say from a 10” to a 8” or 7.5” dia. blade? Just to create some more space between the two metal blades, one which is spinning at very high speed.

Other than that it’s a very cool idea. I’ll have to think about doing something like this. It is definitely an inventive and thought provoking idea. Thanks for bringing it up.
