Has anyone ever used the Router-Ease Guide? A few years ago there was a YouTube segment reviewing this tool. That video is no longer available, or at least I can’t find it. The tool is a set of adjustable rails that your router rides inside which allows cutting accurate dados, mortise, sink openings in countertops and some others.

Just wondering if anyone owns a unit or has used one and what you think of it.

Thanks!

Here is a link to what you can use to accomplish the same (and more) tasks than the router ease guide will allow you to do.

When I have a choice, I much prefer to guide my router bit with a bushing in a slot, as opposed to an guide system that you run the edge of the base against (like the router-ease guide).

One reason for this is that most routers do not have round bases and you have to be careful about not twisting the router because twisting the router can alter the distance from the edge of the base to the bit.
