After receiving many requests from customers for a 90° version of the dovetail saw guide, Veritas developed a right-angle saw guide for making finger joints, cutting tenons or on-the-spot trimming of small items. It is also ideal for beginners or children learning to make perfectly square perpendicular cuts on board ends.
Manufactured using the same precision-machined aluminum extrusion as the dovetail saw guides, each reference surface has an embedded 19.0mm rare-earth magnet and is covered with a low-friction UHMW pad. The magnets keep the saw aligned as you cut; the pads allow the saw to slide easily against the reference surface. The clamp can accommodate material from 6.4 – 25.4mm thick.
The guide can be used with any backless saw that has approximately 0.127mm of tooth set, but work bests with the Veritas dovetail saw that has been designed specifically for them.
