Beginner trouble cutting Tables


This is for all the experienced gem cutters who may be able to help me. While cutting tables (using the 45-degree adapter) while cutting gemstones I can only make Octagon shaped tables. I can’t for instance, make square-shaped tables for my Squilliant design (ended up ruining a piece of amethyst over it) and so I simply have no idea how to cut a Table facet in the shape that I want it to be in.

Has anybody ever had this problem, and if so, what did you do to fix it and to be able to cut tables as squares, circles, rectangles, triangles etc?
