I have several all-in-one clamps in different lengths. I like them and use them quite a bit – especially when I am working on location. The all-in-one and a circular saw is an excellent way to get straight cuts on plywood.

Advisory – - You should never trust an all-in-one to line up square to the edge of the wood. You need to use a conventional square to make certain the all-in-one is square.

Is All in one the brand you use? I’m going to get it for the dado wiz. I allready have a festool tack saw. I dont want it to slip when routing dados.

I have a few of these clamps (All In One Brand from Emerison Tool) and find them useful. There can be a little flex on the longer clamps depending on how you push the saw or router. It has never been a problem for me. I also recommend the wide jaw attachments. On one clamp I have a small fence attached to the wide jaw and trimed it with my circular saw. Now I have a reference point to corrispond to the cut line which makes set up a snap. With the longer units I always make sure to measure both sides just to make sure they are on square. You can also make a few jigs that fit in the T-track on the top of some units which gives even more uses. I have found out that the more often you use them the more uses you will find. As with any tool there are always limitations and areas where they excel, but I have found these very useful.

There are other brands like Pro Grip, Bora that I am sure work equally well. I just don’t have any expierience with those particular brands.
