I can not begin to describe how well this clamping tool guide works. It is easily adjustable to clamp on any width work piece within 50" or less. The 50" length is great for cross ripping sheet goods (4' wide). The guide has three levels of clamping force but the first level is enough to secure the guide so that it will not move during ripping.

This guide absolutely does not bow to the side as you rip. You can press the base plate of your circular saw tight against the side of this guide and rip away. For the first time I can rip a full 8' sheet of plywood and the cut is consistent width the full length. This is virtually impossible to do with cheaper guides like the thin-gauge, two-piece one from Johnson.

This guide has two t-slot tracks as well so you can design jigs and stops to attach to the guide. I purchased the optional 9"x12" HDPE saw plate for circular saws that runs in the T-track of the guide but I haven't used it yet. I don't know if I will ever have the need to. If the guide doesn't bow sideways, and believe me, this one doesn't, you can get a straight cut without the need of linking your circular saw to the guide with the optional plate.

The guide has slots that allow you to insert optional ruled scales (SAE or metric). However, I have purchased these and they are no good. The measuring scale is made of thin plastic laminated on paper and is off by 1/8" within 48". See my review for the "All in One Clamp I-50 50" Scale (English)" product. This applies to all the E. Emerson all in one measurement scales that I have purchased. However, the extra wide surface between the T-slots on the Ultra Wide clamp leaves plenty of room to add a quality adhesive backed measurement tape such as those sold for table saw rip fence rails.

If you expect to take this out of the box, throw it on top of a piece of plywood and have it automatically square and clamp itself you need to look elsewhere, maybe hire a cabinetmaker. If however you have a lot of experience in cutting panel materials with a portable circular saw you will find this a godsend. It is straight and clamps hard and that is all a craftsman expects.

Expect that in the typical dusty environment that the clamping mechanism may have to be cleaned. The length of the clamping stroke is short but is long enough for the job at hand. It is obvious from the comments from neophytes that they weren't able to easily remove the slack. Complaints that you need a square are puzzling; if the panel starts square and you cut a parallel line, aren't both parts square? Lastly, this tool does not have divine origins: after you cut a piece you measure the result to quickly identify problems, not wait until all components are being assembled.

I used this to cut prefabricated countertop material where the cut edge would be exposed and any out of square issues would scrap a panel. It worked flawlessly. The only scrap panel was caused by "pilot error".

One thing, the additional price for the ultrawide clamps is worth it. Also I found that set up with a accurate 48" scale was far more accurate than a measuring tape and much easier on the eyes. Lastly while I used the black plastic saw guide with success, the UHMW guide for the "Boomer Red" clamp also sold by Amazon looks like a better design.

I agree with the other reviewer. I wish I had bought this guide a long time ago! It does not bow and the clamping mechanism is positive and very quick and easy to use. I expect to purchase the 96 incher for those really long cuts. After years of trying to follow my chalk line with varying degrees of success; I now have a tool that is easy to use and enables perfect cuts. It is worth the money if you need accuracy!

When I get this thing clamped down it works great. However, I have trouble getting the adjustable side of the clamp to set right so that the clamp will lock - it's supposed to click when it locks, but I find it's quite difficult to get it to do this with the adjustable side of the clamp underneath the straight edge out of sight, and it's fiddly getting your fingers down there to mess with it. By the time I have the thing locked, my straight edge is out of alignment with the line it was set to.

Likewise, it's not easy getting the thing to slide away from the workpiece when you release the clamp (I usually pull the whole clamp off the workpiece and flip it over in order to readjust the clamp).

Something that didnt occur to me to check was the clearance underneath my circular saw motor housing. My Bosch has less than 1/2" of clearance and so it does not clear the straight edge - meaning that I can only use this saw to make cuts with the narrow edge of the saw plate against the straight edge, which can be a little unstable on trim cuts.

I bought this along with its brother, the All in One Clamp 99-Inch Ultra Wide Grip Clamp to rip a bunch of 3/4" ply to be squeezed into our tiny attic opening to lay as flooring.

Setup and use is a breeze. The blue plastic lever has three positions of lock; turns out that the first is plenty to keep this edge in place without moving for saw cuts.

If you're at all concerned about squareness of cuts, a couple of tips:
- try to always work opposite of, and measure from, a mill-cut edge of the wood (not an edge that you've already cut)
- double check your measurements and edge placement after clamping this tool in place
- you can always use a carpenter's square to verify right angles, just be sure to measure from a known "good edge" (again, a mill cut edge is preferred)
- if you measure you piece after cutting and it ain't square, then your remaining stock isn't either -- just keep that in mind

Gonna tackle some shelves and cabinets next, and these clamps sure as heck beat trying to run sheets of ply over a table saw. This may save me from having to buy a router table, too.

One dig I noticed: there are three steel pieces that make up the friction lock for the clamping mechanism, and they bite hard into the plated steel rod than runs underneath the straight edge, the full length of the tool. They actually bite little ridges into the rod, making it a little difficult to adjust the sliding clamp position without a little bit of wiggling (kinda like speed bumps). I'll keep an eye on this and update my review if they make the operation of the clamp more difficult over time.
