While perusing through Lowe's yesterday I came acroos this circular saw
guide called the Ripmaster http://www.choiceproductsinc.com/ripmaster.html .
Has anyone purchased one and how do you like it?

I have never used one, but some variations of it. Personally, I went to
a metal place and bought a 20 foot length of aluminun 1 x 2 channel. I
got 4 straight edges at 8, 6, 4, and 2 foot lengths. With a clamp on
both ends of the channel, you can rip almost table saw straight.
I'd be worried about slight waviness in the cut--there's nothing keeping
you going straight other than your own skill.
The ability to cut thin strips is interesting though--that's one
disadvantage of the usual straightedge approach.
