My old router didn’t have a way to attach an edge guide, so I made a plate from hardboard and added my own edge guide to it.

It worked so well that I decided to do the same for the circular saw. I had to drill four holes to attach the saw to the base. I also made the knobs and countersunk the nuts and bolt heads to secure them. Of course I used my new router edge guide to make the slots!
