Tool manufacturer BORA Tools has introduced two new products to its Bora Saw Guide System: a Jigsaw Guide and a Router Plate Guide. Both are designed to work together with the WTX Clamp Edge Saw Guide, and allow for greater precision and consistency when making jig saw cuts and dados.
“The BORA Jigsaw Guide and Router Plate Guide are designed to enhance the productivity of your power tools,” said Todd Gluski, Brand Manager of BORA’s parent company Affinity Tool Works. “When combined with the Bora WTX Clamp Edge, you gain a tremendous advantage in efficiency and precision of your cuts.”
BORA JIGSAW GUIDE
Made exclusively for and designed to fit most jigsaws, the BORA Jigsaw Guide slides directly along the T-Track of your Bora WTX Clamp Edge. The sliding side points and locking screw allow it to accommodate almost any size jigsaw and its adjustable pointer guide keeps cuts true.
One adjustable plate locks down with a simple screw handle allowing it to accommodate nearly any size jigsaw. It’s also very unobtrusive as the saw rests easily and snugly without clamping the saw itself. These features allow for a quick change in moving from one type of cut to another – cut a straight line, then simply pick up the saw, remove the clamp edge from the material, and immediately cut freehand.
An additional feature allows the user to cut a 360 degree circle using a cut piece of wood that can be screwed into the jig saw. View the Jigsaw Guide in action on BORA Tool’s youtube page.
ROUTER PLATE GUIDE
This useful router guide will help make straight, accurate dados and rabbets. The Bora Router Plate Guide includes a 1-inch standard guide bushing for mounting directly onto most routers.
It adjusts for bit size, board size and thickness to ensure pieces that might be slightly smaller than standard sizes will fit tightly. For instance, a ¾-inch board that’s not quite a true ¾-inch will be loose with a dado cut using a standard ¾-inch bit. Adjust the cut with the dado guide for a snug cut every time. The large plate size allows for easier handling, ensuring the router stays steady and is easy to handle.
The Router Plate Guide retails for $52.
