Hi Theresa, there are many factors to make an octogon or any shape perfect. Here are the most important three. A- The presice angle. B- The verticality of the saw. C- The presice equal length of all segments.
REMEMBER: Ajusting the angle by using sanding disc will change the length of the segment. It means you solve one problem and you creat another.
If you combined all the three factors above in one cut you would have perfect octogon.
Good luck.
