I like the adjust-ability of this. What holds it in place. Hard to tell in the picture. Is the tip of the screw pointed?

I will get some more pics of it up soon. However the radius it will cut is 7 feet and the locking mechinsm is a bolt files to a point with a tee nut with the burrs cut off to create a collet of sorts
