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. No measuring, no marking, no chalk lines – the Rip-Cut™ quickly and easily attaches to almost any circular saw, letting you cut pieces up to 24” wide with tremendous accuracy.

 

The Rip-Cut™ is a no-nonsense, straight forward, precision accessory for your circular saw that is so incredibly affordable it will pay for itself in no-time. It features a durable design including a solid aluminum guide rail, ultra-durable impact resistant plastic, an easy-to-read precision adjustable scale, and a reversible guide arm which works whether you’re left or right handed. It’s a super easy, precise, and affordable way to break down large panels for almost any project.

With all due respect to a lot of the posters here... why in the hell are you comparing a $600 Festool Track Saw or a $500+ table saw to this one? It's $35 for crying out loud!

A lot of us can't afford table saws, or track saws! If this tool gets you anywhere close to the rip cutting quality of those, tools, it's a no brainer! 

Personally, I have a table saw, but I'm definitly getting 1 of these so I can cut things down to rough size before making the final cut on the table saw. I may be getting a little old but dammit mdf is heavy.

I get it if this tool doesn't fit everyone's needs, but I can think of a lot of people that it would be perfect for people who don't have the space or money for the alternatives.

I don't know, just my $0.02

It seems like a nice jig for cutting small sections; but using two hands for guiding the saw seems like it would be difficult to use on a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood compared to using a Bora Clamp Edge clamp and a cordless circular saw where one hand is free for stabilizing the stock your are cutting.

I've got to agree with Bob (us bob's got to stick to gether)

I think maybe there are a lot of people here trying to justify their track saw purchase by slamming this inexpensive alternative by Kregg.

If you already have a table/trac saw, then don't worry about it. For those who don't have one, this will be perfect. I'll buy one two for making rip cuts on the jobsite. Don't have to worry about idiot assistants dropping my expensive portable table saw.

 I think they were shooting for small & portable. It is more "handy" than some 8 foot long straight edge or plywood but it remains to see if it as good or better....

I like the idea but I cannot see how this would be more effective or accurate than a simple homemade guide from a spare sheet of plywood.  Sorry, Kreg.

I, too, would like to see a video of the device in actual use, primarily the support necessary for a 4X8 sheet of very heavy furniture grade plywood.  I use 2 inch thick 2X8 insulation panels laid on my shop floor to cut large plywood panels for cabinet construction.  The insulation panels provide support for the entire panel and I use clamping guide bars to guide the saw through the entire cut.  Doing it this way means that I am only having to heft the panel once to lay it down on the insulation panels and from then on until finished slicing up the  4X8 plywood panel I am just sliding the panel around on the floor.  So, am not sure how this new device will help me

I have the Master craft version of this tool. I think it is time for an upgrade.

Nice jig.  I only have one problem with it.  I wonder as you cut at the two foot mark how differcult is it to control so it stays square.  I think the guide that follows the edge should be more of a "T" to give more control during and at the end of the cut.

Hmm, this may be just what I need to trim Door Slabs to replace some old doors in the house.  

It is sad the world is getting so full of critics. I think this is a excellent idea and especially in light of the fact it has KREG on it so the quality and compostion will be there. Secondly,this device is priced less than a carbide router bit. Lord only knows this will help the DIY guys and people doing things in shops without the pleasure of having a table saw or a panel ripping saw that costs a fortune. Nice job KREG. I have a tablesaw but will still order one of these for doing applications outside of my shop.

 

Keep up the Development of useful and affordable tools.

Very well put Bob !!!  Compare apples to apples . God only knows you want to spend the bucks you can get something better. Your right a lot of people can solve thier problems very economically with this tool.

Wow, put out a new product and already ripped to shreds. I think not having a video showing its use (just pictures) hurt the intro of this product. Many questions would have been answered with a video showing use.

$34.99 is way too cheap to be a Kreg tool LOL.. .Just kidding. Has a purpose, like the ruler (and yes it is cheaper than I thought it would be). I did think it was going to be a bit more "awesome" pending the "wait 2 days."  That was a good catchy way to keep us wondering Kreg. I liked that…but a video next time.

I'd rather see a drop in jig for my k4 to be able to use it as a dowel jig for places pocket screws just don't work or look good. Also a mini-micro jig using the deck size screws would of been more awesome. The micro jig was returned (dud).

Keep up the good work, you can't please everyone :)

Looks like starting a cut accurately and ending it accurately would be difficult.   Can the blue edge guide be changed out for a longer one?   I think I will stick to clamping a good straight edge on for now.

Miter Saw Recommendation

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?

Miter saw stand

     Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings?  I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet.  I have an extra Kreg router…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…

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…
