Topic tags/keywords: jig tip question

I just inherited a 4-foot and 8-foot TruGrip Pro edge guide from my father, as well as a plastic router guide and circular saw guide to ‘ride’ in the guide. However, I don’t have any instructions for drilling holes & mounting the circular saw. The company is out of business, so I can’t go to them.

I really don’t want to screw up mounting my circular saw to the plastic guide – I want it to work well so I can gut 4-foot and 8-foot lengths of plywood at home (instead of having to have it done at the lumberyard). Does anyone have any suggestions for how I go about mounting the circular saw so its square & effective?

Check the ‘Wood River’ brand at Woodcraft.
They look like the Tru Grip

KDrevik, I have these and use the heck out of them, including the saw plate.

I might have a full set of instructions for the Tru-Grip clamps. I’ll see if they have any info on the bases.

Thanks for the advice, guys. John, I hope you can find something – cause I’d love to use my Pop’s old tools.
