So has anyone purchased this and used it? How do you like it? I read a lot of reviews about how its made of cheep plastic and is not as good as it is made out to be. I wanted to see what people here say about it before I decide to buy one or not.  Thanks.

Definitely plastic... not particularly cheaply made though. Like most Kreg stuff it is well built. My issue with it was the guide arm sticking so far out on the right and the fence being a little short allows the saw to rotate slightly at the end of the cut. Not show stoppers by any means, both issues can be worked around, just a couple of things that make for an accessory I'm less than excited about.

Hello there,

I wanted to take a few minutes and tell you more about the Kreg Rip-Cut™.

The Kreg Rip-Cut™ is an easy-to-use tool that helps speed up and simplify the process of ripping down large plywood and MDF panels. The Rip-Cut™ quickly and easily attaches to your circular saw, letting you cut materials up to 24"-wide with great accuracy.

I can also assure you that the Kreg Rip-Cut™ has a very durable design, made from high-quality aluminum and impact-resistant plastic polymer. It also includes a solid-aluminum guide rail, an easy-to-ready adjustable scale, and a reversible guide arm that works whether you're right- or left-handed and whether your blade is on the right or left side of the saw.

All in all, the Kreg Rip-Cut™ is an incredibly easy, precise, and affordable way to break down large panels for almost any project. You can learn more about the Rip-Cut™ on the Kreg web site: http://www.kregtool.com/RipCut-Prodview.html.

Thank you for your interest in this product. We wish you the best of luck!

I've tried mine once so far, just with a little cut off saw attached, did the job but was a little awkward to hold the guide against the plywood and push the saw, may get easier with practice. Still think a cheap table saw would be easier and more versatile. If you already have the skill saw and occasionally want to rip sheet, it does the job better than a simple straight edge.

Hi Gary - Doing the job a rip cut was designed for, breaking down large sheet goods, would be an awkward, difficult and highly dangerous job on a small table saw.

I've been using my Adaptive Cutting System table for a few years now, and it's been really solid. This past week was the first time I ever needed to use the miter guide though.I was rebuilding some shelving in a tiny closet and I discovered the…Continue

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…
