Summary & Verdict on the Kreg Rip Cut

This is in my opinion a useful device if you do two things. The first is to take a little time and set it up properly at the start. It should fit most saws. The maximum cutting width is 24" so not suitable for every job.

​It can handle 3.2mm (1/8”) up to 610mm (24”) wide. 765 x 290 x 55mm (30 x 11-1/2 x 2").

The majority of buyers thought that this was a very useful tool to own. For me it is a little bit limited in cutting width, but for what it can help you cut, it does a very good job. I also think it is a bit expensive, and don't see the ​£40 value to be honest. Still that's what it costs and if you plan on cutting a lot of timber, it is still worthwhile getting the wallet out.
