Great time saver, accurate, durable.

I've used the Rip-Cut for a couple of years now and still love it. To the reviewer complaining about accuracy, you do have to carefully align the cursor. In addition to setting it at zero per the instructions, before each work day I will set it to a desired width and test it on a piece of scrap first, then adjust it again if necessary. When locking it down, rock the rail a bit to seat the wedge rather than forcing the handle down. I use it so much that I ran a couple self-tapping screws up from the bottom into the saw's plate and leave my lightest saw attached full time.

Sidewinders Only

I was so excited to get my Rip-Cut about a month ago. I was ready to break down sheet goods with a vengeance! That was until I tried to put it on my wormdrive circular saw. Which was impossible. I ended up having to take it back. With that being said, it looked to be constructed well. I think I would have preferred the an aluminum option (obviously would be more $$). But, with the DIYer in mind, the plastic construction is more than adequate. I was very disappointed that it wouldn't work with a worm drive saw. I thought that it should have been noted on the packaging. (*NOT compatible with most wormdrive circular saws) But if I used a sidewinder, I'd buy it again.

Great Product!

I just used this for the first time last weekend and I LOVE it! It was easy to use and helped make the perfect cut I needed.

Five Stars...an excellent tool!

I am legally blind, and I’ve tried a dozen different jigs, and setups that claimed to assist in making perfect cuts with a circularsaw. Only the “Rip Cut” lives up to its promise…every cut I’ve made thus far has been right on the money…perfect! Plus Kreg is a “Made in the U.S.A.” company! This tool is very well designed and engineered…I’m a big fan. Five well deserved stars! *****

Measurements off

Bought thus today to cut down a couple sheets of plywood into panels. When I assembled it the zero line printed on the rail is a little over a sixteenth recessed over the top of the edge guide. I have to measure my cuts and then compensate for the guide being off on the Kreg scale. Very disappointed! The saw mounts very securely into the jig and it is very easy to use when I get it set correctly and its a two hour drive to exchange it so I used it and will just deal with it.
