OK - never should run two flights of stairs before my meds. It is a Hirsch " The Cutter's Edge".

Wow had it for 30 years huh?, Sounds like one made by a company called Bora or something like that. They sell it online and at Lowes. I was thinking of getting one. Thanks for the info.

Almost forgot - with the Hirsch guide I can keep BOTH hands on the saw.

RCW - OK - it's 0554 hours and I just opened my eyeballs. Be back in a minute. Whew!!!! Two flights of stairs this early is not fun when you are bionic. Alrighty now - it's a Hirsch Straight Cut. Two pieces with a real solid connection piece so you can use it on smaller pieces. There is a track down the middle of underside where the clamps ride and they can be torqued down pretty good. It will handle 2 x 4 stock with no problem. I've had mine for about thirty years and still works fine.

What is the brand of clamp that clamps underneath that you use for a rip guide?

Comment by Mark Rehl on March 24, 2012 at 10:00am

I too would like to see how it handles when the saw is out to the extreme extention and the possibility of of binding is most prevalent as we have all experienced. I have used a separate rip guide with clamping from underneath for years and have not found anything better yet when ripping a 4 x 8 sheet of stock lengthwise

All cuts I've seen so far using the rip cut tool were with short cuts. How about some cuts where the saw is out near the end of the tool (where stability and accuracy is more of an issue)?

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
