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.

 I agree 100%. Also this totally depends on you having a perfectly straight edge on the panel being cut.

Love KREG stuff but not too enthused about this one. Was hoping it would be a low cost precision rip guide with its own straight edge built in...

I'm sorry but this is hardly revolutionary and it looks like it would be hard to control at the ends of cuts.

Track saw is what I am looking for.  Most of us own a circular saw and need solid adapter to make it able to perform the track saw job.

This rip-cut adapter will perform well only the the smooth edge as it has to guide along when making cut.  my circular saw already has guide rod but smaller.  

Track guide.

Track guide... is what we need.

Yes Home Depot do, BUT the accuracy of what they do leaves a lot to be desired. Have not had a good experience with them ripping the sheets down to correct sizes. 

Kreg needs to show this in motion - not just static pictures - for both rip and crosscuts.

this is something  I am going to by

Kerg, I do believe you missed the boat with the boat with the Kreg Rip-Cut!!! I have a lot of the Kreg tools in my shop, but I doubt very much if you will see this one hanging on my shop wall. I will have to see one in operation before I make my final decision though.

What you should have done was make a better, more usable version of something like the Eemerson clamp guide.  And, by the way, I am not very impressed with your router lift either. The other Kreg tools I have are awesome though.

Great idea. I use a long guide clamp bar with a universal base that I attached to my circ saw. Poor mans track saw. I think this might be really useful in terms of measurements. I had to create blocks to make sure the saw was on the line. I also like the idea for making the base universal for routers. Have to make sure my cuts are perfect as I only buy American cabinet grade plywood thats very expensive a sheet. Wrong cut can lead to a costly mistake.

This does look cool, but I agree that an actual video from start to finish would be VERY useful!

At the top of the page price is listed at $35.

Guess it's OK if the cost is under 20 bucks. It seems okay if the matieral has a straight edge to start with.

I might as well pay the guy at the home depot .50 cents a cut to make a 4x8 sheet smaller. I've had good luck with my T-square to make straight cuts.

Agreed. Would like to see something similar to this with a track.

At over $30 I am not interested.  I will continue to use my cutting guides made from scraps of masonite and lumber.....I feel they are easier to use and have less chance of error.  The way the saw clamps to the guide does not look like it would be very secure on my Skil worm gear.

I don't think 24' is wide enough. Like some people said, how do we cut 4' x 8' in half? Also, how easily does the slide? Do we need to hold it and slightly push it as we push the saw? I wish it had small horizontal wheels at each end where support arms slides easily as we push the saw. I may have to draw to show what I'm talking about.  : /

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…
