Introducing the Kreg Rip-Cut™


Available at Kreg Dealers everywhere

$34.99


Ripping down large panels into smaller more manageable workpieces can be one of the trickiest, most intimidating, and expensive steps of any wood project. Even for experienced woodworkers ripping with the nicest table saws, you’re still forced to lift large heavy panels, balance them carefully to avoid binding and bowing, while at the same time trying to support the finished workpieces  and waste material as they exit the saw.

 

There is a faster way. There is an easier way! There is a better way.

Introducing the Kreg Rip-Cut™.

 

The Rip-Cut™ is an incredibly handy tool which speeds and simplifies the process of ripping down large plywood and MDF panels. No more taking your work to the saw, instead take the saw to your work.

This is something I am going to have to try. Sounds Awesome. Thanks KREG !!!

Is there a video of actual use?  All the pictures show the saw half way through the panel.  I'd like to see one at the start of the panel, as only 1-2" of the guide piece will be touching the side of the panel.  Not very stable.

According to the photos ,it looks like it works well for lefties and righties.

I also would like to see how to setup and start the cuts.

Can't wait. That has been the number one problem in getting straight cuts. Notmally I'll have the hardware store rip it, but at $.50 a cut this thing will end up paying for itself.

 

I have to agree with these comments.

 I see a potential for binding up & kick back.  Sorry getting old and slow with the reflexes.  I am sure price is a consideration for everyone , but there are track saws available now that are very safe to use. I will have to see and use to be a fan.

Great comments and questions, everyone! A quick note about the start and finish of the cut... when designing the Rip-Cut, maintaining adequate support through the entire cut was one of our top priorities... The Rip-Cut features an extended guide arm which ensures your cuts are precise , straight and safe from start to finish. The guide arm provides great support both at the beginning and end of the cuts so that you can cut confidently and count on getting the precision you need!

Wow, maybe I can make those shelves after all! Thank you Kreg Jig!!

I clamp a board, 1x4 or similar size of wood and use that as a edge to cut against.

I am sure cost was a key driver to the new device as well as the intent of providing a tool to create consistent straight cuts. It seem like the leading edge of the guide is about 1 1/2 inches and will rely on the user to make sure that they keep a steady hand when starting/ending.

Time will tell, but I STILL do like the overall intent of the tool and its use. Thanks Kreg for keeping the art of DIY a safe and fun activity. 

Got any idea on the price?  Look very affordable and easy to use.  I've been waiting for this for a long time.
