 Tim,

 Yep, used it a few times when it was more convenient than using the saw on the rail. It is way more substantial then other brands of similar guides. Easy to use and works well.

I've both of them and both are very usefull.

One is a classic parallel guide that works very well, the other is usefull for cutting shadow gaps - and it enhances the dust extraxtion when used in combination with a dust extractor. It closes the big opening on the right side of the saw so no dust can come out there and the amount of air the dust extractor draws through this opening is reduced too - so more dust goes to the dust extractor.

Regards
Markus

I just got it and plan to try it out this weekend.  Could prove to be quick and accurate without the hassle (not that it's a big hassle) of using the rails for a quick small cut.
