The edge guide part number is 202050001 and can be purchased through their parts line 1-866-539-1701. Cost is about $12 including shipping. Although I'm disappointed that this part was not originally included in the box.

Fuego 12 Amp 6-1/2 in. Magnesium Compact Framing Circular Saw is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Woulda coulda Let me start by saying that this would've been a great saw. It cuts beautifully. But Ridgid went cheap on the hardware. The thumblock mechanism went soft - I couldn't lock the depth at all; it kept slipping to full depth. I have years of experience and I'm not going to cut 3/4" plywood at full depth, and it wouldn't even lock there. I tried to tighten and adjust, only to find out the square ended bolt is simply pressed into the blade guard and the springed-plastic thumblock lever is easily stripped. Not able to fix it. Looks nice on the shelf, useless on the job. Sorry, I had a Ridgid mitre saw that I loved, but the quality (and the lifetime warranty) are gone.

The guard can stick a bit and the depth adjust is maddening. But, if you take the time you can figure it out and work with it. Put a Diablo blade on it and you have a gem of a saw. Easy to work with. Note ...the cut guide mark is actually the immediate left of the blade....meaning a cut on a line will actually cut to the right...and leave the line, which I find helpful. How the depth adjust design passed muster is beyond me. Basically, a little spring holds the hold thing in place...or not.

Better than using a heavy framing saw all day. Yes, the plastic adjustment levers are less than perfect but I think they keep the saw light. The depth adjustment lever is simple to adjust tighter. Just loosen with a star bit, pull it out and turn the lever over a couple of notches and re-tighten. No big deal. Love this saw!

I have used it several times and it is a joy to use. I even cut a 4x4 and the saw zipped right through without a problem. (of course, it took two cuts!). All the adjustments are easily located and the levers tighten with no slip. The long cord is a plus.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dont buy Do even think of buying this saw. It pulls to the left on any lumber not plywood. The drpth lever wont stay tight no matter how much i retighten. I bought this only for framing off the ground. Now its unuasable a complete waste of money.

Have the "lifetime" warranty but home depot doesnt really do much about it. had a guy in the tool rental dept look at is and said it was fixed but it wasnt. Cuts crooked. Sucks
