I have the 50” model of this All-In-One Clamp Guide and love it. It’s really nice to use when breaking down a 4’x8’ piece of sheet goods without having to manhandle it up on the table saw. I cut them up right on the tailgate of my pickup before they come into the shop. You don’t have to have the Saw Plate just hold the saw firmly against the guide. When you “set it up” for your circular saw Sharpie the offset between the blade and the saw’s shoe and you’ll not have to measure the offset the next time you use it.
Rockler says about the guide:
The first zero-deflection straight edge clamping guide! Provides you with straighter and more accurate cuts, dadoes and routing without additional clamps
The perfect woodworking combination clamp and edge guide!
Integral clamping jaws and locking lever provide a quick, easy way of clamping the guide.
Features instant edge-to-edge clamping, low profile with no obstruction, extra long handle and 1-3/4” wide extrusion.
Built-in T-track on top of the guide allows you to use any of our versatile accessories or shop-made jigs.
Optional router base plate and circular saw plate lock onto T-track and provide perfect tracking along straight edge; HDPE construction.
Aluminum squaring attachment has extra wide jaws and provides accurate square-up for guide system. Measures 7/8’’ high x 3-3/4’’ wide.
Create your own shooting board for routing or cutting with the circular saw.
