In Detail

Simplicity itself, you just can't go wrong. The saw is held in place against the head by three magnets. The head can be set to 45°, 90° or 135° using the pre-set stops or at any chosen angle in between. There are two lugs on the body to locate the guide against the face edge of the timber to be cut. The body of the guide is held in one hand whilst the saw is drawn back and forth by the other; what could be easier? The saw stays perfectly aligned with no need even to mark the timber. Made in Sweden.

Good solution for square saw cuts

I needed to make a series of good, square saw cuts for joints on the legs on some kitchen stools. They were also at a slight angle across the upright. My Veritas guides are not adjustable and a little fiddly when they can't be clamped so the Nobex looked like a good solution. All the cuts were spot on the the cross pieces slotted in perfectly. I used a Gyokucho 616 Ryoba saw but the Veritas dovetail saw would have worked well too. The guide is perfect for right handers, I am not sure how a left handed worker would cope. Setting the angles is easy and I look forward to using it on other projects in the future.

This is a bargain. The same item is on sale at Amazon but they want over £55 for it, however the seller is offering a 3 year warranty whether it is genuine is debatable.

Personally I wouldn't spend £55 on a gadget but at £20 I'd go for it.

Works great!

This tool is no longer available for purchase in the USA so I bought it here. Customer service provided to me by Danny was totally top notch and I greatly appreciate his prompt communication and excellent help! I received the tool in 8 days UK to Hawaii! Awesome! Thanks so much Danny! I will certainly buy from Axminster again if I need something I can't find in the USA!

As for the Nobex 505, it works great as expected! My brother owns one, so I already knew what I was getting. I use it with a Japanese saw and the tool helps a lot with tracking for hand cutting. Although the head is plastic, accuracy is very acceptable for small projects. Can't go wrong with this portable, easy to use tool. Very happy with it!

Aloha from Hawaii!!!

Poor construction

This is a great idea. It is however let down by being made of cheap plastic which completely fell apart after less than an hours use. It is a handy tool if used very lightly. Could be much much better

Excellent and will do very accurate mitres with care

Fine for cuts where no great accuracy is required but I also found that with careful attention to sawing action (i.e. either using no or very light pressure and let saw glide freely) I can get very accurate mitres and right-angle cuts. This is the best sawing aid I have come across. WARNING: THIS SEEMS TO BE DESIGNED FOR RIGHT-HANDED USE and I would imagine it to be difficult to use left-handed. This is because you'd have to locate it on the far side of the wood that you are cutting unless you clamped it rather than held it by hand. I contrast the Nobex guide with my experience of the more expensive Veritas Magnetic Saw Guide which I found far less useful.
