The WTX edge guide and router attachment solved more than one problem for me. I needed an edge guide to rout some dados for a dresser. But, clamping a straight edge was a problem because the clamps got in the way. Also, I could wander off the line. Furthermore, I need to rout exact fitting dados for undersized plywood. The Bora guide solved all these problems. The clamps are integrated into the design and low profile so they are not in the way. The router jig is attached to edge guide so it can't wander. Once adjusted the edge guide was rock solid and didn't move. The clever adjustment for undersized plywood saved me from having to build a jig to do the same thing. Some notes and problems that I think would be useful for someone using this for the first time (the instructions are weak): 1. The plate sags off the cut at the start, from the weight of the router, so I had to put a support piece the same thickness as the work, behind the router at the start of the cut. Start at the end without the clamp handle. 2. It is fussy adjusting the fence so there is no side to side slop, yet still able to slide smoothly on the rail. I tried many times and if it slides easily there is some wiggle. Tightening the screws moved the fence a little. But it was minor and didn't affect the cut. I think Bora should have adjusted the fence at the factory so it slides smoothly and has no wiggle. Why leave this up to the customer? It is only Bora parts involved. 3. I sprayed the plastic plate with silicone and that helped it slide better. 4. The end lock that slides is VERY difficult to unlock once it is locked. The first time I tried to move it I thought it was defective. It is also difficult to lock although clamping pressure closes it tightly. I had to use a putty knife to pry it open and unlock it. Poorly made or designed. They should fix this at the factory so it locks and unlocks easily or use some other mechanism. The plastic parts do not move in and out easily. 5. Adjust your depth of cut when the router is on the jig because the jig raises the router up higher. 6. DON’T lift the router off the jig at the end of the cut until the router has completely stopped. If you do you risk grinding up the plastic bushing hole (I did this a little). Hard habit to break. 7. Step 7 – make sure the small pointer is still on your bit size (1/2” for example) when sliding the base for the 2nd cut. Pointer is sloppy and moves. 8. Back up the cut with scrap the same thickness so the you don’t get any tear out at the end of the cut, especially on plywood. Make sure you don't climb cut. 9. It is not self-aligning so it takes some fussing to line up the notch on your cut line at the beginning AND at the end of the cut. 10. My biggest problem was getting the dado exactly where I want it. The notch on the plate is the center of the bit. For example, if I making a ¾” dado for plywood using a 1/2" bit, and if the dado, as measured from the left side of the board, starts and ends at 10” to 10 ¾ “, then where do you align the notches on the jig? If you align the notches on the center line (10 3/8”) as the instructions suggest, the ½” bit makes a cut ¼” from the center line, which is at 10 1/8”, not 10”. The entire dado is off 1/8”! SOLUTION: Draw a line ¼” off one of the layout lines (either 10” or 10 ¾” – which one you choose is critical!). Then follow that line with the notches on the guide. Draw the line at 10 ½” if the jig is set up on the right side of the edge clamp. That is because if it is on the right side the jig will move towards the fence and away from the 10 ½” line and then it will cut the full ¾” width to the 10” line when you make your second cut. If the jig is set up on the left side of the edge guide then draw the line ¼” from the 10” line (10 ¼”). Like all new tools there is a learning curve. Although I messed up some nice cherry plywood I would buy it again because it works. I also can use the edge guide with the saw plate to make accurate cuts similar to a track saw.
