Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by goodreason Great for Cutting Large Building Materials
Bora wide track clamp edge is 3-3/8" wide & 50" long, sturdy aircraft aluminum body, lockable sliding adjustable clamp, with a 4 position tension locking handle. The handle can also be used to hang the edge for easy storage.
With my measurements, drew a line with my straight edge. Again, measuring the face plate of my circular saw drew another line and placed the clamp alongside that line, locked in position and proceeded to cut the plywood. The cut was perfect, with no blade binding that can cause kickback. Looking at “picture #2”, you'll notice the difference in the cut with the straight edge and without the guide. The edge didn't budge with all the locking devices and tension positions that can be applied when cutting.
This is a very strong, safe and sturdy tool that's light, and easy to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Al Good straight edge
Very easy to use. Once you get the measurement down from the cut line to the edge. Very good straight edge and holds nice and tight on the wood. The plastic saw mount that I bought later that pairs with this guide isn't worth the money but this guide is a good one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roger A must have tool for any DIYer
It is a great tool to have when using hand tools. It lets you make straight cuts and grooves effortlessly. The grip is very good and the track has nice convenient guides. I wish I had bought it sooner to make my projects so much easier. I have so far used it with the router and the circular saw and love it. One of my favorite tools. If you are using stable base and clamps with it, it works as good as a table saw.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by reb277 Good woodworking accessory
I’m not a woodworker but a home DIYer. This wide track clamp & saw guide is something I need infrequently, but when it’s needed, it’s really needed. That said, I found this tool / accessory to work very well for its intended purposes. The clamps hold tight and the locking mechanisms are very easy to set and release. I’ve yet to determine how to use the angle feature (documentation is wanting), but I generally wouldn’t need it for my projects. In all, a very good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John An excellent product.
This guide clamps securely, with adjustable clamping force. I can hold my saw or router tightly against the guide without worring about the guide slipping, bending, or moving. The clamping action is fast to clamp and release. The ability to position the guide at a small angle is a good feature. Sometimes the clamp does not release the guide completely but I have learned to return the release handle as far as possible and then it will consistently release.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RJJ21 Quality product
This product is well built, light weight, easy and intuitive to use. The clamping mechanism is easy to adjust and can be locked on to a piece of wood, etc. very quickly. It unlocks with a simple flip of the handle. I couldn't figure out the angle adjustment option shown in the product pictures. The T Tack for accessories is well thought out and will be handy in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoeSeattle Just what I needed
I don't have a big workshop or a garage so need to work outside a lot. The clamp edge is perfect for allowing me to make quick and clean cuts using a jigsaw or circular saw. The built in clamp can be operated with one hand so is especially great for large sheets of plywood or wallboard etc... I doubt it will ever break. You do need to make sure it is square but I would do that anyway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by flyhard Simple and accurate
This is a simple tool that provides a quick and accurate method to cut straight lines. I have used it with my router, jig saw and circular saw and all of the cuts were perfectly straight. The setup clamp is very simple and quick.
