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.

Why would you say that? It looks to me like the blade enters the wood a good 6" or so behind the start of the fence thingy.

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.

 

Does this work with right angle saws?  Only sidewinders are shown.

I think this would be WAY faster than clamping a straight edge and ripping, and the price point seems easy enough....thanks KREG!

I want to see the same exact thing. Thanks for mentioning it.

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.

Dear Kreg,

 

I have been wanting a product that will help me precisely cut panels the exact same size time after time with a price tag that I can afford.  As some have pointed out there are a few vendors that have a really good track system with arms that can do this.  I'm fortunate enough to own their plunge saw and guides but unfortunaltey cost is an issue for me in regards to their parellel arms that helps me cut exact same size panels.

 

I love the concept but the main reason people use a table saw or a track saw system is to rip large panels wihtout having all the tearout.  This is the whole reason for such precise panels such as building cabinet carcasses. Not sure that this solves that problem.  Not sure about others but Im not usually ripping large panels unless I'm building furniture and if I need to rip panels for say something like siding for a shed, then usually such precision is not an issue.

I love and own many Kreg tools but this one is probably still not going to work for me :-(

Great new product.  I don't have room to take a table saw on a trip.  But I need a good way to rip 4 X 8 sheets.

What happened to inovation???

A few years ago I visited the local aluminium door maker, Took a look at their rack of profiles, bought a 3m length of one a 2m length of another and a 1m length of a third, added a few bits of 3mm MDF and I have 2ft, 4ft 6ft and 8ft options with a carriage for each saw, the jigsaw (It doubles as a circle jig) and both routers - all for at total cost of less than £20.00 and it's as rigid as heck!!!

Sorry Kreg. this one's a loser!!!

In theory it looks like a good tool but I can see it binding on long , wide cuts. There are several other 50-100 inch straight edge clamps out there that will do the job. I made a wood jig to match the saw offset which eliminates the measuring with such clamps.

Is there a metric measurement available? 

In my honest opinion, the "blue" piece that rides along the edge of the wood SHOULD  be of equal length on both sides of the Aluminum. More like a drywall "T" square to give you more stability when starting and ending your cuts!!

I have same reservations about start of cut & ease of setup. Also I wonder about cuts at the far end of its maximum length. I think there may be a bit of wobble as the edge guide would be a fair distance away and you would need to hold the guide against that edge with your spare hand to prevent any wobble. 

This look like it has potential. I see one major flaw in the design in its current form though... Kreg, will you release a metric version or at least have a conversion kit available for it? Imperial measurements are fine should you want to limit your sales to the US alone, but here in Australia and over in Europe, feet and inches went out the window over 40 years ago!!!

Looks good, can't wait to get mine.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

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?

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
