Introducing the Kreg Rip-Cut™
Available at Kreg Dealers everywhere
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.

You mentioned that only media contacts have the guides,.What is a media contact
Does anyone know when in April this will be released?
I ordered mine yesterday from Factory Authorized Outlet/Kreg with free shipping for orders $25 and over. Scheduled to be shipped on April 12th so I hope that holds true as I'm anxious to try this item.
Exactly my question also. Have you gotten a responce from Kreg? I'm a big Kreg fan (user). I like the concept but starting could be a problem. Hope they give a response.

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.
I was told that it would be in the second week of April...
I received and email on Thursday the 5th saying my order was shipped via FEDEX, so I should receive it early this week. Will post when it arrives.
This would have been awesome to have for the bathroom remodel I just did!Must have for the next project.

My rip cut jig arrived today. I was a bit concerned with the videos as they all showed this using a 7 1/4 " electric saw and that's something I almost never use anymore since I got the cordless 5 1/2" a while back. I was glad to find I can use the smaller one on this. Both assembly and calibration was easy. I don't have anything large to work with at this time so made a few one inch cuts on a small piece of scrap and they were all dead on. This is obviously made for larger pieces as it would be impossible to work around clamps because the guide rail hits them. I laid a couple router pads on the sawhorses for practice pieces to keep from shifting. Starting the cut seemed easier than finishing but maybe that's just me and will improve with practice. Once you have this jig set up for the saw you will be using taking it off an putting back on is a breeze. I may partially drill a couple holes in the saw base where the points of the two set screws go. I don't know why they have these so pointed. This is in no way a complete review as i just messed with it for about an hour.....but it seems to be something I may use when the need arises. Although I have a pretty good set up with the straight edge now. Just another addition to the shop that may or may not be used all that much but is there if needed.
I forgot to mention one thing in my post on receiving the Rip-Cut jig today. It was a welcome surprise to see this was "Made in the USA"! We see that far too seldom with tools now a days.
