Moving this side to side this was not staying aligned at first, so I attached a straight piece to the black edge guide to give it more surface area and make it more solid. The bulk/weight of the unit can be counter productive in smooth movements in this regard given the small surface area of the edge guide, but since it comes with holes already I think you're not supposed to use it as is to begin with. Though after attaching a straight piece to the black edge guide I discovered that the edge guide while stiff laterally can be easily bent vertically. This is unfortunate, since the rest of the unit is rather solid. Though the bending issue is avoidable by simply not resting the router on top of the edge guide.
The guide is easy to use, pretty intuitive, and does a very good job of what it is supposed to do: guide the router.
I've used it with Porter-Cable 690 and 890 series routers and it is a cut above the old style with two rods. It also works with the plunge base of the Dewalt 611 trim router.
The things I don't like are probably minor to most people.
First, if they drilled and tapped the open end, and put a plate there: You would have a storage place for all the extra bits they give you to adapt it to different routers. I bought this guide for use at work. I've had the same guide for about five or six years now at home. The pin to make it work as a circle guide was lost about a month after I bought the one at home. One of the guys that works for me is a hobby machinist, so he is going to drill and tap the body, and make a plate for the end so we can store the extra parts in the guide.
Secondly, the indicator sleeve could use hash marks at the 45-degree points, which would let you adjust to the nearest 128th of an inch, and interpolate to the 256th of an inch. Again the guy who works for me can make the change.
