What are the odds of the guide flexing while using just one 48 inch section.

What are the odds of the guide flexing while using just one 48 inch section.
Asked by: Yort
This cutting guide flexes much less when only using one 48" section when making a cut <= 48" in comparison to using both 48" sections when making a cut longer than 48". The amount of flexing depends on how long and stiff the work piece being cut is and also how well the work piece is supported along its length. To minimize flexing it is best to support the work piece being cut along the length of the work piece being cut through using a table, saw horses, etc.

98 in. Professional Cutting Guide is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Ive been a carpenter for over 15yrs. Im not too sure why other people are giving this tool a bad review. As being A carpenter you always have to improvise. That's what makes a good carpenter. Especially when you are purchasing a $20 tool. This works great!

I just bought this to use to rip some plywood. no instructions on how to get the handle on and it does not fit on the guide pieces something is out of spec. so I can't use it to tie the two guide pieces together making it worthless. Now I have to stop working on my project and take it back to Home deport for a refund. other reviews said it flexed and had to be taped down to use. My take on this is a piece of junk and Home Depot should stop selling it.

I read the reviews and figured I would just support the middle with a clamped piece of wood to prevent deflection. I tried that and unfortunately still got poor results when using it as an edge-jointing guide for 62" pieces of wood. Thus unfortunately I cannot recommend and I returned the product. The product would probably work fine as a 49" guide, or as a 98" guide (with center support) when you don't need the precision of edge-jointing. The price is right and it seemed nicely made. Just wish they had a $40 version that could actually work as a straight 98" guide. Interestingly Empire sells a 96" box level that is advertised as within 0.0005 in. per inch in all working positions. This actually does the job I want (straight guide that is sturdy) but is more than $100.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great trim an exterior door I'm glad I read reviews before I used this product and braced the center of the guide with a piece of scrap wood and a third clamp when making 80" cuts to trim some doors. I also removed the handle as I don't see any purpose for it other than to obstruct a saw. This tool worked perfectly, and I have put a drop of loctite on the ends of the screws for the bracket to reduce the chance of them coming out of the bracket and getting lost.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from On the one hand, it is a beautifully manufactured and beautiful product. This guide will bow under pressure toward the middle when used at full length. I use a board clamped at mid point to keep it from bowing. The stock is only .074" thick and 2.2" wide, which explains why it will bow without support. It's beautifully and precisely manufactured and assembles easily. Included image shows how I support the guide to keep it from bowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent straight edge for the price I have read most reviews, and read the gripes and down falls. Personally I think this is a great straight edge. But before you use take a small fine file and do the bottom edges of it to remove the very fine burrs. Once this is done there is nothing to scratch nice finished surfaces. Yes the small screws for the handle are a draw back, but when I'm done, I break it down and slide the handle down part way and set the set the screws again. What would be great, if it came with a couple velcro straps to hold the two pieces together when you want to store them. But if you make sure both mating ends are flush n square before setting the handle splice, it will work fine. I have read about some who say the handle needs to be removed to clear the saw. Set up the straight edge, so the saw fence clears. Remember to move the straight edge over to accommodate the saw fence n blade displacement. Just a few simple things to remember when setting it up, and you will get good results.

Nothing negative so far. pretty self explanatory to use, and easy to set up on the drywall/plywood. I use it with both my circular saw and my jigsaw. I have even used it to slice a clean line with my box cutter.
