How long a board do you think you could handle? I'd guess it's good for drawers/boxes, but not case sides?

My FIL has one and I've had the pleasure of using it for an evening of playing around. It's pretty easy to use with decent instructions. Can't say much more than that because one data point does not a trend make. :)

Don't know exactly. The length is limited only by what you can comfortably work with (standing on end) without having it tip on you.  The base must be in firm contact with your router table at all times.  I will say that the handles that you hold when moving the jig during routing give you a pretty good full handed grip on each end of the jig.
