Paula, try 50 MG of Vit B1 and B6, 2x a day for one week on and one week off, for 2 months.  Cured my carpal tunnel and put me back in the wood shop.

My local Lowes didn't have them yet so I drove to one about 20 miles away.  I still haven't put it on my saw yet.  I went to the doc and have carpal tunnel in both hands and right now they are giving me fits because I still keep trying to do all I need to do before surgery.  I am hoping the rip cut actually helps my husband cut a straight line.....

Are you serious about the vitamins?  My hands are getting worse daily and I really don't want the down time with surgery.  I am sitting here looking at bare plywood floors and cabinets that are only part way finished and that doesn't count the ones I haven't even built yet.  I will certainly try this though!  Thank you so much Steven!

Yes, Just used it for the first time today. Pretty cool, but there is a small problem.

Although the cut is very "true"most of the way through, at the end of the cut the saw wobbles, not giving you a true cut for the last inch.

The end of the saw guide ( facing the operator) is even with the center of my saw blade, so when you get to the end of the cut, the guide is also at the end of the edge of the wood. I appears that if the guide would be a little bit longer it would let the saw travel on a continued true course.

Hey Kreg Guys! any help with this problem?

I have the same problem. I just ripped an 8' sheet of plywood made 3 full length cuts and always had that bit of off tracking on about the last inch of the cut. This was with the Rigid Fuego 6 1/2 inch blade.

I think I'll mount my Ryobi 18v and see how that works

Anyone do any video's of them cutting with one of these.. I am hard pressed to leave my straight edged ruler, and clamps.. 

whatever works!!!

Say it ain't so.  I just picked mine up at Lowes last night.  I hope to get it mounted today and make some cuts.

I bought one yesterday and mounted it on an old 7.5" saw with a new Freud Diablo blade. I also had the tailing off at the end. I considered lengthening the guide that runs against the edge. Maybe making one out of wood. I'll try it this afternoon when I get home and report back.

Received mine yesterday. Works great on my SkillSaw! Start and end of cut work perfectly. Nice little unit for cutting stock down.

I noticed the same thing first cut was only 10 " wide not noticeable.  Next cut was near capacity 22 1/4". It's obvious what the problem is your putting side presher on the guide once the front of the guide passes the end of the board the front of the guide would pull to the right causing the end piece not be straight. Think of the guide as fulcrum the farther from the fulcrum the more side force effects the cut.  

That makes sense. I'll give it a whirl this afternoon. Thanks!

Hi everyone new to the site, i would like to purchase a rip cut myself. but if your struggling in the states i dont think i've any chance in england. if anyone knows who will ship one cheap i would be very greatfull.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
