Description

Turn an ordinary circular saw into a precision edge-guided cutting tool

Great projects start with high-quality cuts, and you can make those cuts—more easily than you ever imagined—using your circular saw plus the Rip-Cut™ Circular Saw Edge Guide.

The Kreg Rip-Cut™ turns your circular saw into a precision edge-guided cutting tool that makes straight, accurate, repeatable cuts in plywood, MDF, and other large sheets. With the Rip-Cut™, you can cut with the confidence you want and the precision you need.

The Rip-Cut™ easily makes straight, accurate, repeatable cuts without measuring, marking, or having to keep the saw on the cut line. The Rip-Cut™ does this with a long edge guide that follows the straight edge of the sheet you are cutting. So, all you have to do is lock the saw in at the measurement you want—up to 24"—using the built-in measuring scale and then make your cut.

With a built-in measuring scale, you don’t have to measure and mark each cut, either. Just lock the saw sled at your desired cut width, and you're all set, whether you need to cut one piece or make multiple pieces of the exact same size. Plus, the Rip-Cut™ makes it easier to cut down large sheets by yourself.

The Rip-Cut™ is very easy to use. Simply mount your saw to the universal sled—it accepts most left-blade or right-blade saws—and then slide the sled onto the aluminum rail. After a simple one-time calibration, you can lock in your cut width (up to 24") using the measuring scale and precision cursor. Then, just hold the edge guide against the edge of your sheet as you guide the saw. You’ll get straight, accurate, repeatable cuts easily every time.

Awesome Saw Guide

When I bought this I was a little skeptical but hey...whats 40.00? I received my order and while I found it cheaper from an online vendor I wanted to write a review on this site. I have a Makita 7 1/4" Skill Saw that is about 20 years old, so I went and purchased a 40 tooth blade that was recommended. My intent was to cut everything I needed for the Kreg Router Table Cabinet that I have recently purchased, not received it yet but decided to cut it anyway. After setting the saw and getting the cutting distance marker set I cut the entire project. I measured every piece after it was cut just to make sure...it was dead on. I had no splintering from the 3/4 plywood, very straight cuts and extremely accurate. Cons I chalk some of these up to first time use. I does not like to cut really narrow pieces that are small.,,,,you have to ensure the plywood is really secure. Table saw would have been better but I wanted to use the guide for the whole project cut. At the end of your cut you have to be careful and keep the fence snug against the edge or it will wander on the end...but that will happen with any guide. Overall this is a great product, extremely well made. Lastly I will say that I was able to cut 27 1/2 widths with no variation......may could have gotten a little more but one piece on the cabinet was 27 1/2 so that was all I needed.

Alright

Read and set it up as the directions stated. The measurement was still off so I'd mark the wood line up the blade. I figured every saw is different so it wasn't a big deal and it kept the line straight. The problem comes with all the plastic it's made out of. The plastic lock piece broke after adjusting it about 15 times. It's a major component to the system so it's no longer good.

Rip cut

What an excellent product. I literally wish this product was around when I bought my cheepie table saw. This would have saved me a lot of money. Kreg co. Is the best jig mfg. What an excellent company. They have helped me improve my skills a lot. That's what it's all about !!!!

Great idea but needs improvement

This thing saves me so much time but I have a few problems with it: the guide fence needs to be longer so that there's no play when you get to the end of the board your cutting. Also it is a real pain to get the sled on the rail. Finally it should be slightly wider for cutting full size sheets of ply in half with saws that have blades that go in the left slot, like my makita. To cut a sheet in half the sled is half off the rail.

Great time saver, getting a full sheet of plywood on the table saw in my small workshop is a BEAST, especially by myself. this little tool saves time and frustration, and after my wife saw me use it the first few times she understood why I had to spend the money on it and the other Kreg tools I have purchased. the only problem that I have had so far is getting the plastic parts to slide in the track smoothly, but once locked in place they do not move.
