If you don't have a Router Table, your going to need an Edge Guide. Many companies make them, no sense in paying more for one than you need. The only Caveat which is true for any edge guide is that you need wood to grip to on both sides of the blade to be able to use it. You also need to be using this close to the edge of the wood. With that in mind, you can put a second block of wood to allow you to get closer to the edge, though if you need a straight line in the middle of the wood, you'll need to setup a block of wood with a clamp. I use it for making an inner frame on the inside of my signs, and making mortissen joints with the straight bit. There's surely many more uses, but this is what I have the most uses for. I can setup the edge guide on one board to where it puts the edge of the blade at the end of the depth of one 2x4, then notch several 2x4's without having to measure. Each one will be notched to the proper depth and length! Saves a lot of time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smoke Almost what I expected
No assembly required other than the two set screws that hold it in place on the router. I was a little disappointed that it didn't include a replaceable plastic or nylon edge on the guide. It has holes to screw one on but is not provided. It would make the guide slide a little easier against the wood. It does the job and seems to made of decent quality materials.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MACE The Ryobi Router Edge Guide works great
The Ryobi Router Edge Guide is a valuable addition to the router. The edge guide allows you to make strait cuts that would be impossible to do freehand. If you plan to use your router to make strait cuts on any wood surface, an edge guide is a must have.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rater Essential part of my project!
Since I have retired, my wife has many projects that she thinks I can perform. (Too much watching "This Old House". Without the proper tools and accessories they are almost impossible. I needed this to use my router to make an overhead cut in a 96 inch opening into our re-purposed formal dining room to install a bypass door system.The slot had to hide the hardware for the set of 4 doors. It needed to be the exact width and depth. I am certain that her imagination is not finished utilizing my fishing time.

Can't understand why they would make the guide out of metal then cheapen it by supplying plastic locking screws.
These will strip in a heartbeat. I immediately went to my local hardware store & replaced these with metal ones for about $2. (retail).
Other wise guide works flawlessly for making jig saw puzzle frames.
