Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IanH Sketchy attachment options
Can't complain much for the price, but none of the bars fit well with my Dewalt jigsaw. One is barely too big, and the next size down had more slack than I prefer. The attachment screws/clamps went unexplained in the instructions. It's not rocket science but they left a lot to be desired. Setup isn't intense but it slows down work flow a lot. good for circles but stick to a cutting guide for straight cuts

The saw guide was easy to set up and use it is a very handy accessory to have for your circular saw and jigsaw . I have used it several times and wonder how I ever got along without it

As other reviews mention, the direction are horrible but with a little col common sense, you can figure it out. Product works ok, just wish the side of the guide extended further down.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeremy Avoid this product and make your own jig/guide!
When I saw this product on an end cap display near the check out aisle I had hopes that it would help improve my radial cuts with my jigsaw and I threw it in my cart on an impluse decision. When I got home and opened the package the first thing I noticed was a blatent lack of clear and easy to read instructions. The second thing I noticed was it was difficult to read the tick marks because most of the marks were painted on and the paint was damaged (rubbed/scuffed off). Lastly the product was just too difficult to figure out (with the absence of good instructions) and furthermore I couldn't get the thing to work with my jigsaw due to the fact that none of the adapters/clamps would attach to my jigsaw base (and I have a rather common black & decker jigsaw as well). I wasted no time in returning this purchase and lamented my impulse decision to buy it from the end cap display near the checkout aisle and I chastised myself for knowing better than to buy an end cap display product in the first place because they are usually over priced and cheaply made!

My friend and I both tried to figure out how to attach this to my new circular saw. Niether of us could figure it out. we are both pretty intelligent. I couldn't honestly give it a very good review just because of The lack of good directions

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phil Best saw guide I've used.
The guide is large enough to line you up before you start in the board.

The product works pretty well. There is not a blade to fit perfectly in my circular saw. I figured they would pick their blade widths based on the most popular saws (I have Dewalt). I therefore have to make sure my guide hasn't moved while making cuts. Having to check to make sure it's square makes it less useful, but it's still better than following a chalk line.

I suppose you get what you pay for. The instructions on how to use this are pretty poor. It feels like it doesn't include hardware to attach it to your circular saw (it does have hardware for a jigsaw). I say it feel like because it's possible I just didn't understand the instructions. I used a bolt from my collection to lock in the arm. It works, but it's small - so rip cuts wider than about a foot are out of the question. It was an inexpensive tool, so I suppose I shouldn't be surprised at its quality.
