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.

Looks interesting.

I suppose if you dont have a table saw then perhaps this is an option for some cuts, but this may be an answer to a non-existing problem.

Looks like a must have for me!

This assumes that the end of the 4X8 is square?

If I am ripping numerous fir strips, then I don't want to waste my time setting up a track guide for every cut. 

This tool then would be perfect, since the rip guide that came with my Makita is a piece of junk.  I don't see this so much as a cabinet maker's tool, but a contractor tool. 

I don't like using the edge of the wood as my straightline guide and the 24" max cut is not useful enough.

It does say on the page and in the small video that it will make cuts from 1/8" to 24" and that it will rip sheets of plywood in half, not crosscut them in half.

I can't see how you can cut a 4x8 sheet in half in order to have two 4x4 

I would love to replace my table saw with something simple like this or others but my main issue is if the board is not straight from the beginning, then it is a no go.  Is that true?  Den made this point.

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.

I see the value in either final cutting or ripping the same width ply multiple times. I'll still need my track to rip down large sheets but I could make the final cut with this if its completely accurate.

It is very misleading. You can only cut it in haft 2x8 not 4x4

Should we all go back to Carpentry 101? a rip is cutting the material long ways. this is a "rip-cut". Everyone wants it to cut 48 inches, I personally can not reach 48 inches to verify that the edge of the jig is staying flush with the end of the board. For that i will use my handy dandy 1x4 and 2 Kreg Clamps. For taking off 12 or 18 inches off a sheet of plywood this would be awesome. I have a table saw but once again i am not big enough to hold a 3/4" sheet of ply steady to make a safe cut. I can tell you this much its an easy sell to my wife so she will have the piece of mind that i am being safe looks like my next birthday or christmas present.  keep it up Kreg another item on my tool bench.

I agree with most of the comments being made. I expected something truly innovative from Kreg. As I love and have most of their jigs and fixtures. I must admit that I am a bit disappointed at this latest offering. I too will stick to my hardboard and plywood "homemade" saw guides. They give me a very consitent cut. $35 for another "gimick" is a bit exorbitant. Without seeing an actual "in use" video, i would think that this fixture would want to wander. I could see myself trying to push the saw thru the cut while fighting to keep the fixture secure against the edge of the plywood with my other hand. This sounds like a real pain. Just my $0.02 worth.

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

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…
