Since I bought the Rip Cut I have questioned the quality and design of the tool. It took me multiple times to get it calibrated. I then made one rip cut on 3/4" plywood with my 6 1/2" saw. It did not stay square and totally screwed up my wood. Never going to use that again. It should be all aluminum and they need a better way to mount the saw to the sled. No more screws and more secure.

I have had my rip cut for over a year and I have used it many times with no issues at all. It does a great job for me.

I would agree about the manufacture of the Rip Cut, but I have not had problems with it. I have cut domestic hardwoods with it as long as 18'. It stayed true through the cut. My worst line did get I/8" off on a couple of cuts until I learned what I was doing wrong. I would suggest that you try it again. When you are away from the shop it can be of immense help I believe.

I use a straight edge and clamps. Old fashioned but never lets you down.

I have one and have not experienced the issue you are having. However, I use it to rough cut my sheet goods. Though they are rough, I have measeaured them and they are pretty squared. I use the table saw to rip my wood to their final dimension.

Rip cut is a nice tool, but honestly most of the prof.. guys just use the cheaply made and easy to use RIP-Guide made out of two pieces of wood and clamps!

I have a rip cut and have used it many times without any issues at all. It has worked very well for me at all widths of rips up 2' wide, and a small as 2" wide. Sorry to hear you had trouble.

I recently used the RipCut for a number of cuts of various sizes. Whilst I agree that a better way to mount the saw should be found and aligning the gauge with the blade was fiddly, I found this device invaluable.
