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.

It seems to have the same limitations present in my old Accurip saw guide--24" capacity. This is fine for many jobs, and if you can't find that other saw guide, this Kreg version looks OK. If Kreg brings its typical attention to detail and usability, it may very well be worth the premium price. In use, I have not had any problems with binding with the Accurip, but it doesn't have the precision offered by a track saw. Since it uses the edge of the sheet as the reference edge, your cut isn't going to be any better than that. I recognize that a circular saw isn't going to serve as anything but a tool to hack big sheets into pieces small enough to manage on precision equipment, no matter what accessories one attaches to it.

I agree that the guide looks simple and easy to use - and it is fairly priced too! that price makes it easy to add to the tool chest.

One thing that strikes me as I look at the photographs (see #7) - the weight of the saw being suspended across the span by your arm can pose a possible injury. If your saw weighs 7 pounds, that's really 7o pounds of weight (pressure on your back) you are suspending and controlling as you make the cut. Now add the rip-guide to the weight plus manage the wood with your other hand... we have to be careful.  Still, it looks like a great addition to the crib.

I will definitely look into this

Kreg, 

Nice Idea BUT I think you should have made the side guide block longer and centered on the bar; like a T-Square. 

OMG!  I totally want one!!!!!!!!

$34.99 will be available this april. Tells you at the beginning

Seems like its under $40, based on some of the tool website that have it already listed for sale.

Got any idea on the price?  Look very affordable and easy to use.  I've been waiting for this for a long time.

I agree, it looks ok once the saw cuts into the panel but possibly difficult to get started accurately. Wonder how long it will take to reach the UK?

Is there a video of actual use?  All the pictures show the saw half way through the panel.  I'd like to see one at the start of the panel, as only 1-2" of the guide piece will be touching the side of the panel.  Not very stable.

Seems like no more unstable than a regular rip guide.

This thing looks like a joke...pretty bad for a Kreg tool. A t-square out of wood works as well. Cheaper too. I hope this is an April 1st joke from Kreg.

SURE WISH THAT I HAD THIS TWO YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS BUILDING MY CAMPER.  Did most of the build using a jigsaw and an OLD pour quality table saw.   This looks like it will do the job for those without the space for a table saw.   I look forward to trying it in person.

On the surface this looks like a great tool. But I see three things that need to be addressed:

First is that the guide will only give you a good cut with a factory edge. If there are any errors from previous tools or other mishaps they will telegraph into the new cut.

The second is the 24 inch limit. Sometimes you need a 4 foot piece. Kreg could fix this with an add-on rail, either attached with flush mount screws or some kind of quick release clamp.

Thirdly is cutting angles. Ie: when doing roofing or other puzzle piece type work one may need to cut a 45o angle in the middle of a 4x8 sheet.

So I think Kreg should work on this some more and release an up grade solving these problems before next year.

By the way I am very happy with all my Kreg tools and jig components.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.
