In Detail

This anodised aluminium guide helps keep your saw on the right track and perpendicular to a workpiece. It provides a registration surface about 32mm tall. It is particularly useful when crosscutting tenon shoulders or the edges of a dado, which is where you want your saw to cut straight and true. You can hold the guide onto your workpiece with a hand or secure it with clamps. The machined reference surface has three embedded magnets and a covering of UHMW low friction material. The magnets help keep your saw in contact with the guide while the pad allows it to glide along the reference face. The bottom of the guide has two high friction strips to resist slipping on a surface. It also has a T-slot to accept a pair of 50mm capacity clamps (optional accessory). The guide is available in 200 or 350mm lengths. Made in Canada.

Easily damaged

I bought the longer of the two guides to cut an inch thick piece of beech I am using for a project. I needed to cut through two long tapering lines, keeping the blade square. I camped the guide in place with a couple of standard G clamps and I achieved the desired cuts. The guide, however, didn't fare so well. I tried to keep my saw as level as possible, but this wasn't always entirely possible. The result was that the guide and the non stick strip sustained considerable damage. The guide would be perfect in conjunction with a saw with no kerf, but jobs requiring such a saw wouldn't need the guide! I wonder how many more times I can use the guide before its edge is no longer accurate. The guide needs to be taller with a gap below the non grip strip to allow for the kerf. as it stands, it is a tool that needs looking at by Veritas and some improvement, as it is expensive if it is only good for a few jobs.

A delight when sawing multiple tenon shoulders

When combined with their dedicated clamps (sold separately at quite a price), the 200 mm guide was easy, precise, and reliable to use on both narrow and wide boards. The clamps allowed for obtaining precisely the friction that made exact adjustments of the saw guides position simple, without spontaneous or accidental loss of that position. Sawing exact tenon shoulders of several pieces simultaneously was a pleasure, particularly as the result was at machine level precision. In fact, the one complaint I have is that the black anodising of the guide makes it a bit difficult to see the marking line for the cut.
The saw is held in place by 3 magnets against a plastic covered surface. The plastic doesn't seem to become damaged by a 10" tenon / dovetail saw, but cross-cut and ripping saws might.

Over-priced, fragile and difficult to use

I found this guide very awkward to use - especially on thin material (e.g. on 1-2" (25-50mm) stock. Even on wider stock, it is not easy to hold down firmly and clamping it is fiddly (I didn't buy the optional clamps at a mere £41.30 a pair), Disappointingly, the low-friction material which is adhered to the surface gets wrecked very quickly by the saw's teeth abrading it because it is too near the bottom of the guide. This was despite my having read elsewhere of this problem and taking extra care accordingly. In contrast to other Veritas tool or device I've bought I believe this is vastly over-priced (as against just being expensive) and of limited utility. Without the fragile low friction material, it is essentially an aluminium extrusion with 3 magnets. I wish I hadn't bought it. However, I have the Nobex Magnetic Saw Guide and this is far better (see my review for more information).
