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.

Rip Cuts made easier

Like all of us, making good rip cuts on 8 ft. stock plywood is hard to do without a table saw base and good extensions - all of which take up a lot of room. Who but a cabinet-maker is going to have a panel saw? Anybody interested in this rig is probably cutting stock sitting on a pair of saw-horses. Once you have your saw mounted and aligned on the base (mine is a Porter-Cable with the saw on the LEFT side), it is easy enough take it on-off without worrying too much that you'll be misaligned. In application, it's somewhat tricky and requires a learning curve to glide the guide along the edge while pushing the saw. It's pretty easy to rock the guide and end up with an uneven cut. Others have complained on workmanship and 'plastic' components - but I find them sturdy and you don't have to have everything gorilla tight to ensure the fit. I still prefer my long straight edge spring clamped down (which I got so many years ago I don't know where you'd find one like it now) with a 1/2" offset to the blade. I'm assured of a steady bearing surface while pushing the saw and no rocking. The Kreg guide is a good jig for the price, just don't know how much I'll really use it.

Learning curve

I am a contractor and I build a lot of cabinets for clients. Cutting up the plywood without a panel saw is always a challenge. I was intrigued by this product and decided to give it a try. I used my Milwaukee 18V 6 1/2” saw, fit perfectly and having no cord is always nice. I was cutting my plywood in half at 24”. There is a bit of a learning curve on moving the saw and the guide when it is wide. I had trouble on the last 6” when the aluminum guide came off the material the saw wants to wander causing a roll on your material. I wish that was wider. After several cuts I started to figure out how to hold the guide to the end. It works great for small cuts less then 12”. Definitely, worth the money, helpful in the shop just practice on some old material before taking on the good stuff.

I wish I'd have read the reviews first...

I have a Skil Legend saw, and this doesn't fit it well. I used it on a couple of my cuts, but found that I could make a better cut by hand. The way it clamps to the saw is "iffy" at best. I love all my other Kreg tools, but this one is relegated to the "ugh" bin. Unfortunately, the Skil is my go-to saw for most of my work, as it has the power and feel that I like for plywood projects. On the flip side, it fits my DeWalt saw nicely, but I use that saw for only the most basic cuts as it's not powerful enough for the big jobs.

Skill Saw fitment

I am basically happy with this attachment as it's not my go-to attachment for ripping the sheet goods. I, however, was disappointed that my Skill Saw would not attach to it. You would think with the Skill Saw being a major workhorse in the construction industry this would be a no-brainer. fortunately, I'm not a one saw person.

makes cutting plywood easy

I don't have a big table saw that can handle plywood sheets so I've been using other clamp/guides and it was always very hard to get right. This product is so much better! The edge guide stays useful as the front part leaves the wood. The only trouble I have is that the red line on the saw base attachment doesn't line with my blade so I have to measure carefully before I lock the slide on place. The slide can be hard to move. All on all, I love the tool.
