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.

Not sure this is a great improvement over cutting with a straightedge guide.  And, since it is limited to 24", it is not useful for cutting 4'x8' sheets in half to get 2 4'x4' sheets.  And, as others have said, it looks like it would be unstable at the end of the cut.  A video would be helpful in seeing how well it works.

How does it work if you need to do a 45 deg beveled rip cut?

Maybe a mold at the front/leading edge, connected to a vacuum source could be added to enhance the device and make it more appealing. It would be a challenge to create an adaptor for all of the circular saws on the market today.

My issue with circular saws is dust collection.  This looks like something that would make it easier to rip panels.

I like the universal fit for different saws.... and I see a small orange pointer is there adjustments to the pinter to get it zeroed out?

 

Another thought, will this be  adaptable to a router for making long daddos?

This is useless unless it's 5 or ten bucks. I've build jigs on the job from scrap wood in 10 minutes that work way better, and the plastic give it maybe 2 weeks on the job

 

Kevin,

Thanks for your comments. Actually, depending on your saw, there's usually between 5-8 inches of guide arm support before your blade enters the workpiece. There's a tremendous amount of support at the beginning and end of the cut thanks to the extended Guide Arm.

 It seem like the leading edge of the guide is about 1 1/2 inches and will rely on the user to make sure that they keep a steady hand when starting/ending.

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.

That's it.....? That's what the two day wait was for?? Sorry, but after a series of nice tools, which I own, this is a serious dud.

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.

Just another shop toy!!  I like toys!

Great idea for routers ................. :)

Is says that you can cut up to 24" so I do not think you can make the two 4X4

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

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
