Rigid, secure and quick to set up, this guide improves the accuracy of portable circular saw and router cuts. Its low profile lets the power tool pass by unimpeded. It can also be used for assembly clamping and as a fence for a drill press or bandsaw. The 9/16" thick anodized aluminum extrusion has a full-length tensioning rod built in.
You place the guide on your work, slide the tailpiece into position, and then flip the cam to lock it in place. The cam has two pressure positions and the tailpiece has a quick release. The durable glass-filled nylon jaws are 1/2" high by 1-11/16" wide. Available in three lengths.
The durable ABS saw and router plate accessories hook into a channel along the top of the guide to ensure a parallel cut, improving accuracy and safety. The saw plate fits most 7-1/4" hand-held circular saws (some may require drilling mounting holes) and the router plate has a hole pattern that accepts many common models (Porter-Cable, DeWalt, Makita, Ryobi, etc.).
The optional stop block is used to limit the travel of the accessory plates for non-through cuts, such as dadoes, sliding dovetails and rabbets. An easy retrofit to the clamp jaws, the wide jaws are pre-drilled for a wooden fence that locates the saw blade or router bit relative to the guide to eliminate guesswork during set-up.
An excellent system.
