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.

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.

Rip Cut cons

Let me start by saying that YES this is far above and beyond the saw guide that typically comes with any circular saw. That being said, one would have thought that Kreg would have put it through some more design testing for the real world. 1. The plastic edge guide needs to be aluminum and about 6" longer on the tail end and 3" longer on the leading end. More stability. 2. The base plate should also be aluminum for two reasons. a. When tightening the the set screws you can see the give or flex in the plastic plate At the mounting clips. b. The center finger of the base plate is too wide, not allowing for mitre cuts much beyond 22.5deg. 2b.The set screws heads with the Phillips head slot needs to be larger with a full #2P to prevent stripping with long term use of attaching and removal of the saw. 3. A 12" arm should come with the jig or be available. It is not always convenient to clean off 27"s of work surface when using the provided long arm. I have owned this product for about three weeks now. The ability to avoid the use of a table saw for the most part especially cutting sheet goods by myself has been great. As I said at first this is a good product that could have used a little more thought. When I first seen this jig I was expecting it to be $75-$100. Owning it as it is i would pay that for an upgraded version.

Convenience

I am really enjoying using this tool. I got it because bringing out the contractors saw for just a few cuts can be a hassle. However, when I first tried to mount it to my Older Porter-Cable saw, it did not fit the saw base well (saw base too thick.) I shimmed under the mounts with thin brass washers, used slightly longer bolts, and it fits nicely now. I’ve made numerous cuts of several varying woods, widths and depths with no problems. Although the breakdown and setups now take very little time, I’m considering permanently mounting this onto one of my other saws. I would definitely recommend this to others.

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.
