SHINWA Circular Saw Guide 45 cm with 90°-Angle
SHINWA Circular Saw Guide 45 cm with 90°-Angle
This circular saw guide fits with any circular saw and makes cutting wood easy and precise. The handle is firmly riveted to the angle. Rubber plates on the bottom prevent sliding.

Angle, stop and guide ruler are made of lightweight aluminum, ensuring even prolonged usage without fatigue. The weight is only 920 g. The handle is made from ABS and covered with elastomer. This prevents the handle to become uncomfortably cold in winter or unheated workshops. The edge of the guide ruler is made from stainless steel.

The guide ruler is coated in white and the numbers are black for easy readability. The circular saw guide was made for the Japanese market where carpenters and woodworkers still use the old measuring units. That is why the guide has metric and “Shaku” units. “Shaku” is the main scale on the edge and metric is displayed behind it. Enlargement of scales.

The Japanese manufacturer Shinwa guarantees an accuracy of 0.1 mm along the entire length of the guide. The guide is 58 cm long; with a usable length (max. width of the work piece) of 45 cm. The base extends 6 cm over the work piece for easier set-up with a circular saw or jigsaw. Look at the bottom of the guide in the picture for comparison. The guide is 56 mm wide and 6 mm high.

The stop that rests against the wood is hollow and has a knurled screw. You can insert a 8 mm by 8 mm bar (included) in the opening and tighten it with the screw. This helps to set up your guide in connection with your saw as it marks the distance between guide edge and actual cutting edge.

Two holes in the angle underneath the company’s logo allow you to see the bottom stop directly from above and assure an accurate measurement.

The same as above but:

The 60 cm guides have the metric scale on the cutting edge and the “Shaku” gradation behind, which is the opposite from both the 45 cm and the 100 cm guides. In Japan the 60cm guides are preferred by roofers who work with metric measurements, whereas the 45cm and 100cm guides are used by carpenters and woodworkers who still use the traditional Japanese units.

The total length of the guide is 75 cm with 60 cm usable length (width of work piece). The base extends 6 cm over the work piece for easier set-up with a circular saw or jigsaw. See the bottom part of the guide in the picture for comparison.
