Title: Cutting guide

Abstract: A cutting guide for use with a cutting device having a blade is provided. The cutting guide includes a bracket for securing the guide to the cutting device, a base connected to the bracket for supporting mounting stresses of the bracket, an ankle having a blade receiving and aligning slot and a flexure connecting the base to the ankle, thereby providing a cutting guide that can sustain high levels of force yet retain lateral flexibility. The width of the flexure is slightly greater than the width of the blade of the cutting device, thereby allowing the cutting device employing the cutting guide to cut any kind of material that would otherwise require a workbench.
