I just bought the saw guide and watched a few YouTube videos.

I started using it and it is a great tool. It was easy to set up with my DeWalt saw.

I am planning on building some cabinets and am going to use the Rip-Cut jig.

And of course the trusty pocket-hole jig too.

I will also be changing out the guide for a longer piece.  I haven't struggled with the start of a cut so much as I have struggled with the end.  The longer guide would help me a great deal

I cut my materials on a 

HI density foam insulation board it stabilizes the cut

it is hard for me at the final few inches, I solved it by ripping on a very stable platform, such as rows 2x4s clamped down. I prefer also to clamp the piece. Then I can focus on controlling the saw with Rip Cut.  Wood working to me is 90% planning and 10% using the tools.

Phillip, when I first bought my Rip-cut Saw Guide I was very disappointed. I tried every combination I could think of to hold my saw straight at the beginning and end of the cut, but no luck  Determined not to be defeated by this thing, I decided it wasn't me but the side guide was just too short. I got a piece of hardwood cut it to the same width as the guide and added 6 inches to the front and 8 inches

to the rear. That worked great. I now use the guide not for first cuts but for my final cuts. I just finished a second set of bookcases and used the guide to cut all the plywood to size.

I bought the Rip-Cut Saw Guide, I like it, but have trouble at the end of my cuts. Any advice?

New to K5 and pocket holes, any video’s on the materials listed below?

I am using Danny Proulx book on shop workstations. I am deciding whether to use MDF or Melamine. He calls for MDF. However; I like the looks of the melamine.  I am a little leery of using pocket holes for it. One of the main reasons is I have no…Continue
