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.

My Rip Cut Device

Some time back, maybe w years ago, I purchased this Rip Cut Guide, because I needed a way to quickly cut plywood down to size. I had a small table saw, and that did not allow me to rip down plywood as I needed. With the aid of this Rip Cut Guide, breaking down the plywood became a quick and easy task. I keep my Rip Cut Guide handy whenever I have plywood sheets to cut down to some manageable size. Now I do have a table saw that could let me do that, but using this Rip Cut Guide still makes it fast and easy. So I use it whenever I need to.

Small improvements needed

Overall this is a great tool for rip cutting straight lines and getting multiple pieces the same size. BUT - Kreg needs to improve the circular saw base plate. The two sharp point holders just aren't enough. The base needs a holder system for the back of the plate/saw. Picking the system up with a wide cut setting the rear of the base plate sags away from the saw and allows the saw to move. You cannot ensure the saw is properly aligned. Maybe create a slide butt lock which would hold the base plate up against the saw. It could be made to be used in either slot, or provide two of them. Modify the blade slot edges to be saw-toothed with matching saw-toothed sides on the insert(s).

Rigidity????

Like others have said, good idea, bad workmanship! The plastic just isn't a good fixture for holding a saw and cutting a lot of 4x8x3/4" plywood especially production. If those were made out of aluminum it would be a lot more rigid and last a whole lot longer. (I would even pay the difference for a better made tool!) The reason I know this is because sears made one called Accu-Rip and it works wonderful. Made entirely out of Aluminum and holds the saw well! The only thing I didn't like was the guide needs to be longer. That was the reason I tried this one.
