Universal Edge Guide with Dust Collection is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fairly sturdy but not the best design I love my little DeWalt DWP611 router, but I can’t say the same for their edge guide: model DW6913. On several websites including DeWalt’s, the description says “fits ALL DeWalt routers.” That is not quite true. It does not fit the DWP611 router unless you have the plunge base. If you DO have the optional plunge base, then YES it does fit. I have the plunge base so I was able to attach it and try it out. This comes with TWO SETS of rods to fit DeWalt’s smaller and larger routers. That’s nice. The included hose adaptor fits both my small HD bucket vac AND my expensive German vacuum. That’s nice too. The guide is fairly rigid and robust, but the fence section is too short. It is 9 & 3/8ths” long when fully closed, but can be expanded in both directions using the set-screws located within the fence. Other than carpet-tape, there is no convenient way to add an auxiliary fence. The fence’s internal set-screws are a combo drive that accepts hex head allen wrenches OR flat-head screwdrivers. I like that! The flat-head option is far less hassle than trying to find the right size allen key, especially when these screws are Black and recessed into the surrounding black fence. Only good vision and good lighting can help with this design. DeWalt should consider using standard steel screws whenever they place them in hard to see locations. A far better approach would be to use hand-operated nuts on the BACK side of the fence as seen on some other designs. That would require no tools and no special lighting. This edge guide works, but requires some fiddling and test cuts to insure good results. There is a small scale on either side of the fine-adjustment knob to help make accurate adjustments: one side is graduated in sixteenths-inch, the other in Millimeters. However, that scale is just etched in the same color as the surrounding metal. So unless you have really sharp vision AND good lighting, the scale is practically useless. And as any good woodworker knows, 16ths or millimeters are not nearly precise enough for good joinery. I tried it with a simple slot cutting bit for making a groove in drawer bottoms. I also tested it for simple edge routing of rabbets. For that application I held the router horizontally, which SHOULD make the edge guide work better since gravity was on my side. Nope. The slightest down-force causes the fence and rods to flex. So even under the best conditions with a carefully clamped board in a Moxon style vise on my sturdy heavy bench, I still did not get accurate results. The reason I ordered it was because of the fine adjustment feature. It is not truly “fine” in any sense. It is nothing more than a screw on a standard cheap threaded rod. Yes, the adjustment knob has markings to indicate small increments, but they cannot be reliable with this design. Here’s why… Like all such screw mechanisms, there is significant backlash on these cheap threads. There is a spring to help control the backlash, but it cannot really stop backlash. All it does is mask the effect—-the feel— of backlash as you adjust it. Turn the screw counter-clockwise, and the backlash becomes readily apparent. That means you must always “sneak up” on the right setting by moving forward, locking the guide, making a test cut, then readjusting. If you overshoot by a tiny fraction, you must back up and start over. That’s a slow frustrating tedious time-wasting process. There was no manual included with the unit I received. I have lots of experience with routers and guides, so that was not a problem for me. DIY’ers or beginners may have trouble figuring this thing out. It looked as though someone had returned it since the box had obviously been opened and resealed, plus there was still some saw dust in the box and in the crevices of the fence parts. Dust collection… As stated, it does have a “scoop” shaped dust port which does help direct dust into a running vacuum. Although the adaptor fits my best vac well, it still came off several times during use. The only way I could keep it on was to use tape. Once it was taped in place, the dust collection was OK —- not great—- but managing the hose was a nuisance. Between the power cord and the vac hose plus the normal gyroscopic forces of all routers, I had to plan and manage cuts carefully. I finally rigged up an overhead arm to hold the hose and power cord. That helped but was another nuisance. So if you are looking for convenient dust collection, you will need to plan ahead. My intention was to use this for field work where it is somewhat inconvenient to carry a router table. Since using this, I feel it is better to endure that inconvenience since even the cheapest little homemade guide or router table works more easily than this poorly designed device. I have used better edge guides with a stick and C-clamps. Granted, such homemade devices do not have dust collection but they are faster and easier to set up accurately. If I have to rout dados, then I’d prefer a decent straight edge guide over this. I am not knocking DeWalt since I have been very satisfied with other tools they sell. The DeWalt DWP611 router is one of the smoothest most versatile routers ever made. I can recommend that wholeheartedly! But this? Although I received this product in consideration of providing my review, I cannot in good conscience recommend it. Yes, you can make it function for certain operations, but for pros who demand speedy set-ups, this is not the droid you’re looking for. And if you are new to routers and edge guides, you may find this particularly frustrating to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Guide for DeWalt Routers DeWalt hit a home run on this DW6913 Edge Guide. It's light, sturdy, adjustable where it needs to be, and rigid where it must be. The web site calls it a “Universal” edge guide, but that may be just in the DeWalt universe – it won't fit any of my Porter Cable 690 bases (plunge, Fixed, D-Handle). I used it on my DW 621 router with terrific results. Other DeWalt routers use different diameter rods spaced further apart, but the kit comes with the extra rods and allows for different spacing. With the rods properly placed I can route as far as 6.5” from the board's edge. Scales for Inches and Millimeters are etched into the base, somewhat useful for relative changes, and the fine adjustment knob provides smooth changes. Though it's not clear if the numbers on the knob relate to actual distance moved, they should only be used for relative adjustment anyway. There was one minor issue that kept this home run inside-the-park for me. The four screws securing the fence have a dual slot/Torx 20 head. I couldn't loosen them with a slotted screw driver (who uses slotted screws anymore?) but had no problem using the Torx driver. I'm not sure how many people have a full set of Torx screw drivers though, so I would have preferred DeWalt use Phillips head screws. Still, a very minor complaint on an otherwise great router accessory.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solidly Constructed Guide This is a nice, heavy duty guide made of some pretty beefy steel. Should hold up for a very long time on any variety of jobs. It includes a dial adjuster for fine tuning your measurements to make sure that you are routing your groove exactly where you want it. The dust collection port is small (2"?), made to fit a small-sized shop-vac hose. So if you have a larger hose, you're going to need an adaptor. I wish I could say I've gotten a lot of great use out of this edge guide, but it's unfortunately not as "universal" as I thought it would be based on a quick look at the web description. It is for DeWalt routers only, and definitely does not fit my Ryobi router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge time saver! The guide assembly was easy enough even without the instructions. It is very versatile in its larger or more accurate calibrated adjustments. My only concern was its bulk if in fact you were not concerned about dust collection as in working outdoors. I used it with my older, much older Craftsman Router. Surprisingly it fit. And, and this is a big and, it really does draw the greater majority of dust away allowing for clear viewing as the cut progresses. Other than for the above bulk issue and a possible minor compatibility issue with the Craftsman, I would highly recommend the dust gaurd if you working indoors. Harry

Sorry I haven't had a chance to use this yet, but they keep asking for a review. It looks to be well made and designed, so I expec it will work fine. Built-in dust collection is something I always look for so I am looking forward to see how effective that is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits m Dwalt and my Ryobi This DEWALT Model 6913 Universal Edge Guide with Dust Collection is a very nice addition to my DEWALT 618 router. This edge guide will allow me right at 6.5 inches depth of routing which in my opinion is outstanding for a lot of my woodworking projects. It's very easy to install and also easy to adjust. The way this guide was designed, with the Inch and Millimeters etched on the adjustment knob makes it very easy to fine tune to get the exact resualt you demand in your project. This guide is listed as a "Universal Edge Guide". While that statement ma be a little of an exaggeration it does come with two different sized rods and it also has two sets of holes for the rods so it could in theory fit many different routers. In fact in my case it fits my other router, a RE180PL1G Ryobi Plunge Base router. For me this guide is a TWO for the price of ONE deal. To use this guide on my RE180PL1G I have on rod on the outside hole and one on the inside hole. Works PERFECT!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Edge guide The guide is fine, unfortunately they don't supply the screws for the plunger to hold the guide in place. Went to Ace hardware for screws. It takes 2 different sizes.
