Description

Transform your circular saw into a high-performance, track-guided cutting system

Start projects right by making straight, accurate, splinter-free cuts with your circular saw and the Accu-Cut™ Circular Saw Guide Track System. It rips, crosscuts and makes angled cuts up to 48" long in plywood, MDF, and other large panels with super simple setup, precise accuracy, and amazing control.

The Accu-Cut guides your circular saw along an aluminum track that keeps the saw moving in a straight line easily. The Accu-Cut™ design makes it simple to set up by just aligning the track with your cut line. No clamps are required to hold the track in place thanks to dual guide strips. They feature an anti-slip coating to prevent slipping, and an anti-chip feature to prevent splintered cuts. Plus, the track makes it easy to make straight cuts on sheets that don't have a straight, flat edge.

Circular saws don’t have effective guides that keep them moving straight along a cut line. Plus, it can be difficult to see the blade’s cutting path. Together, these things make it challenging to keep a saw on your desired cut. Circular saws also often cause splintering of face veneers. The Accu-Cut™ solves these problems. The Accu-Cut™ is portable, too, so you can take your saw to the workpiece and cut with precision, rather than having to handle heavy sheets on a table saw. 

The Accu-Cut™ is easy and intuitive for a novice to use, but robust enough for professionals. Because it eliminates the need to keep the saw straight and manually guide the saw along a cut line, the Accu-Cut™ is ideal for less-experienced users. Accu-Cut™ also makes professionals faster and more productive because it makes a variety of cuts quickly and easily in the shop and on the job site.

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.

accu-cut

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!

Disappointed

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.
