[Princess Auto] 48" Clamp and Cutting Guide for Circular saws

Princess Auto has the 48" clamp and cutting guide for $12.99 . Seems like a good deal for the average weekend warrior and a good tool to have around if you have a circular saw or need to straight cut. Lots available at Princess auto Markham. Woodbine/Hwy7

Saw this in the flyer yesterday and was actually considering getting one for the occasional work around the house. Looks like a handy item, some of the reviews mentioned the clamp becoming loose over time but for the price, people are willing to put up with it.

I'll be honest, I bought one of these when I got started with DIY. Years later and fully tooled out, I'd recommend building these instead and skipping this annoying thing. It just sits clamped to a shelf in my garage and never gets touched now.
Make your own track guide, then you never have to measure and double measure where the cut line is and still be a little off.

Thanks for the idea. I usually clamp a straight edge to a work piece before cutting and was thinking that this tool would save me the time setting up. If the quality is not there or it won't get used then I'll probably skip it.

I am going to have to go and take a peak, for the price going to be hard to not pick one up.

I have been using a long level and clamping to the material to make the long cuts, but have always wanted one of these things. If it looks sturdy enough i am going to pick up.

Thanks for posting, would never have come across this otherwise.

Cheers.

If you clamp to of them parallel, you've created a track saw with that circular saw.

The doing yourself is a good idea. And you can make it so 1 edge is for one side of your saw and the other side is for the other side. Less measuring from straight edge to blade.



I purchased the leevally version of this clamp at princess auto and haven't used it as much as I thought I would.
