If you don't have a Router Table, your going to need an Edge Guide. Many companies make them, no sense in paying more for one than you need. The only Caveat which is true for any edge guide is that you need wood to grip to on both sides of the blade to be able to use it. You also need to be using this close to the edge of the wood. With that in mind, you can put a second block of wood to allow you to get closer to the edge, though if you need a straight line in the middle of the wood, you'll need to setup a block of wood with a clamp. I use it for making an inner frame on the inside of my signs, and making mortissen joints with the straight bit. There's surely many more uses, but this is what I have the most uses for. I can setup the edge guide on one board to where it puts the edge of the blade at the end of the depth of one 2x4, then notch several 2x4's without having to measure. Each one will be notched to the proper depth and length! Saves a lot of time.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight
Cons: can't use close to the corner without extra wood.

The Ryobi Router Edge Guide is a valuable addition to the router. The edge guide allows you to make strait cuts that would be impossible to do freehand. If you plan to use your router to make strait cuts on any wood surface, an edge guide is a must have.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Accurate

Can't understand why they would make the guide out of metal then cheapen it by supplying plastic locking screws.
These will strip in a heartbeat. I immediately went to my local hardware store & replaced these with metal ones for about $2. (retail).
Other wise guide works flawlessly for making jig saw puzzle frames.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate
Cons: cheap locking screws

I have a 40 year old Craftsman Router with a guide. Router has .75hp motor which is not big enough, BUT the guide is superior because it allows for very precise settings. I wish the 2013 version had this feature, but alas.......... There has been a question about compatibility with the 180PL Model router, it is compatible, no problem
Pros: Sturdy, Strong, Good Size & Weight
Cons: needs a wheel to move to exact setting

An overall good product for the weekend warrior. Could be a little heavier built, but I would still recommend it.
