Reviews for "Accu-Cut™"

Does the job

I used to use a piece of 1x3 (various lengths) clamped to plywood for the rip and crosscuts, but the Accu-Cut does it better than the way I used to do it. It is sturdy (stays in place), accurate, and easy to configure for my Milwaukee circular saw.

Too much slop between track and saw.

I’ve tried to use the accu-cut several times. I have been disappointed with the results. While setting up the saw I noticed the track and plate were not a snug fit. This slop allows the saw to cut a quite crooked line. To combat this I would have to hold the saw tight against one side or the other of the track by pushing sideways to follow only one side of the track. However, this would cause the blade to contact the rubber edge or blade to not line up with the edge. This also caused the track to bind and to slip on the material. I’m sure this tool is better than freehanding a long cut. However, it cost way more than it should for the lack of precision.i purchased the track for a project but had to abandon my plans to use it due to poor performance. I therefore had to make all my cuts the old fashioned way. A trim board and two clamps. This worked way better and was pretty much free.

Very accurate

I found this product to be very accurate and it works perfectly with my Makita cordless circular saw. Would love to see more track sold separately.

Enables Precision Cuts

Purchased Rip Cut first. Liked it. Saw a need and use for the Accu Cut. I am a DIY in the strictest sense of the term. I don't have a shop. I work in my garage. I share it with my wife's car and all the other "stuff" that is in there. I lay my materials out on the floor to cut them. I was ok if there was a little wobble in the cut lines or if the measurements were slightly off every now and then. Just part of the deal, ya know? I set the Accu Cut up as per the directions and it made a straight cut on the mark the first time. I swap my saw, in the sled, between the Rip Cut and the Accu Cut and I make precision cuts every time. The only thing I can comment on that might be construed as negative is the set screws where the track joins tends to loosen when moving the track around. Thought about Loctite but want to be able to take it apart to store in tool cabinet so I just periodically check them for tightness. Accu Cut has definitely made DIY projects easier with better end results for me.

II purchased the Accu-cut in November 2017 and have used it a number of times in my workshop. Generally it is a useful addition to the shop, however, I have experienced some disappointing difficulties in its use. Firstly when attaching the base slide unit to my 91/4" Triton circular saw I am unable to use the stop block which is essential to the quick removal and replacement of the saw. The Triton's base plate is about 1/4" too wide to allow the positioning of the stop block. This is not a major issue for me and I am able to switch the saw in and out with a minimum of fuss it just took a bit of thought and effort to get it right the first time. The Major limitation for me is the lack of clamping mechanisms to fix the track to the material to be cut. I have no problems with plywood but the track continues to slip and slide when used on MDF. I have certainly ensured that the black rubber backing on the track and the MDF are clean of all sawdust etc and have even resorted to vacuuming the MDF and the track but to no avail it continues to move of the line . I hope that your design engineers can eventually fix this issue and manufacture something thatn can be retrofitted to the accu-cut slide. I am more than satisfied with the many other Kreg tool, and jigs and will continue to purchase your products as and when required. Regards, Richard Monk

Amazing Solution

This product is just an amazing solution. No longer will I be reaching for the scrap heap, hoping to grab a board I have planed and jointed, then clamping it to what I want to cut. Then measuring the plate to the blade on my circular saw while using my fingers to keep the safety guard up. Clamping again. Hoping I didn't forget that measurement. Now it is as easy as 1,2,3!

Almost awesome

My only complaint is that the sled rocks on the track. Actually, it's bad enough where I returned my first one but found the second to be the same way. My saw appears to be square on it's base. First I added shims to compensate but ended up instead adding a plastic guide rail (underneath the sled) the height of the track. Essentially, it rides on the cut-away material. Not perfect, but a huge improvement. Don't get me wrong, I love Kreg products overall, so keep 'em coming. Oh, and ditto on a track-only package. Thanks guys!

There is no support for the saw to stay in the rail system. Can’t get a straight cut. All the professionals use Festool rail, Dewalt also has one. Has metal rail system the keeps saw stable for accurate cut.

Could have got 4 or even 5 Stars, but...

I'm sort of a novice to intermediate woodworker. First, I've got BOTH the Rip-Cut AND the Accu-Cut. The Rip-Cut is older and has a slightly different sled for the saw. While both are very good, I prefer the newer one on the Accu-Cut and have a saw mounted to it permanently. I switch from the Rip to Accu-Cut using the same sled without any adjustment. I really like the Accu-Cut. Does everything I need and want it to do. Only thing keeping me from giving this 5 stars (You LISTENING, Kreg?) is not being able to purchase a set of the connecting pieces separately. I would buy another Accu-Cut tomorrow if I had the ability to put them all together and cut a 8' length of plywood. 'Till then..........3 Stars.

Great tool

This is a great tool but needs more track like others have said. I would like to have the clamps include in a package instead of separate for they are needed.

Great idea but too little and not enough options

Even though there is some play in the sled to the track connections I did get a really nice straight cut with it. The tracks underneath should have a notch cut out in them also so you don't have to remove the plastic starter guide in order to insert or remove the Kreg clamps for storage. Also they REALLY, REALLY NEED A TRACK ONLY KIT. Having to shell out another $80 to do a full 96" cut plus find additional connectors from someplace is absolutely ridiculous. Especially since if you already bought the cross cut tool you already have the sled portion for the saw so you really only need the tracks.

I have just finish a studio desk for a friend that required cuts of 118.68,47.82 and 132.18 degrees to create the legs. Cut them out of one sheet of Plywood. I use the Accu-Cut and it performed beyond my expectations. After glue up I kept thinking this is like creating an art piece. I also had the issue of it being to short. solved that issue. I bought a second Accu-Cut and added another section. If in the future you make one that will extend to cover eight feet I would recommend making the sections into two four foot sections. Thanks Kreg for another great Tool.

Out standing tool

This is an out standing tool and when you use the rip cut it add a whole nother level of speed and productivity to a job sit.

Works Well, Except Plastic Starter Track is Flimsy; Needs More Track Pieces

This guide works far better than others I have used. But the plastic starter track is way too flimsy, resulting in the saw being too unsupported at the very beginning of the cut. A third track section is needed for a 48" cut. Also I would like to make full 96" cuts. That would require 3 more track sections with attaching hardware. Yet track is unavailable separately, something others have complained about. Please correct this.

Great Tool, Another Kreg home run

This is a great tool. Breaking down ply is now easier and faster, and the results are better. It takes a little bit to get your saw mounted in the sled. But once competed it cuts very good. Buy it.

Works just fine

Got this today and worked fine. Not sure why some guys are having trouble putting it together but no problems on my end. After I made my trim cut it was right on the money, again, not sure why some guys are having trouble, mine was right on the mark every time, maybe some are using the wrong blade.

Works good but could have been better

I bought this hoping to solve a big issue of breaking down sheet goods. However, the the fittment is not as precise as I would hope. For jobs that tight, precise cuts are not necessary, then this will work.

Great addition to shop

I'm not typically big on writing product reviews, though I always read them. In this case I need to offer my opinion. Kreg tools have always performed as advertised and the Accu-Cut did as well and in fact far exceeded my expectations. As the owner of a small furniture building and refinishing business, I can't afford or house a large panel saw. I bought the Accu-Cut to get me through a 48" x 48" coffee table project with multiple cuts of 5/4 wood. The Accu-Cut performed flawlessly with no lateral movement of the track and no clamping required with precise cuts every time. Next project are cabinets and this tool will play an integral part of the build. Great investment at a reasonable cost.

Good but not great

Good but not great. As mentioned by other reviewers (on Amazon) there is "play between the sled and the track (enough to change the angle between the blade and the track at least a couple degrees)" This effects the accuracy and reproducibility of the cut. I typically found a 0.5mm to 2mm variation along the length of the cut. This movement also causes excessive wear of the blue anti-slip/anti-chip strips. Every time I made a cut I would notice a few small blue chips of plastic. Another issue was with saw compatibility. I was unable to use my Milwaukee 2630-20 cordless saw as the base was to narrow. I had to use my corded Makita 5007GK instead. If you are cutting down sheet goods to finish off on a table saw the Kreg Accu cut is fine .If you need a high degree of accuracy you may want to look elsewhere. On a positive note the non slip strips are extremely effective at no time did I feel the need to clamp down the wood that I was cutting.

Absolutely great for weekend project within 1/32

I bought this unit to build a toolchest using 1/2" baltic birch plywood. I had to rip 4'x8' to rip apart. I made my cutting plan so I only had to cut on the 48" side PROS As precise as your marking and measuring tape. I achieved all my cuts within a 1/32" margin. Extraordinary price/quality ratio. Can't ask for more. The anti-skid works flawlessly. You do not have to fix the track to the piece. Lay it down, push the saw, that's it ! The track has a starting entry point which is away from your material so you can lay the saw on the track way before you hit the piece. It helped me to get confident. CONS Takes some patience to properly setup. For those of you who do not want to take your time and has to be working perfectly straight out of the box: there is festool track saw at a 1000$ for you. The attaching base could benefit of an improved method to securely attach the saw. However, once my DeWalt cordlees saw was attached to it, it did not move for the 30 cuts I made for this project. The bottom front of my saw raises. The Kreg plate has a reversible piece to compensate for flat or raising saw skid plate. The angle of my circular saw nose is greater than the piece can compensate for, that is, once titghten down, the saw does not sit flat on the bed of the plate. I wish there would have been an adustment for this. Nonetheless, i did absolutely not affect the accuracy of my cuts. When the plate is engaged on the track pointing away, the plate has a left to right play. I cannot explain why, but I achieved all my cuts without a flaw. I have to say that I was worried with this play at first. I made my cuts with a slight push of the saw to the left (toward the blue sacrificial plastic piece) Bottom line: this product is new, may benefit from a few minor improvements. Would I recommend it ? Absolutely yes. Hope this will help
