How Do Buyers Rate This Kreg Rip Cut?
Kreg Rip Cut Key Features
This Kreg Rip-Cut turns your circular saw into a precision edge-guided cutting tool that makes straight, accurate, repeatable cuts in plywood, MDF, and other large sheets.
This is a huge time saver as it lets you make accurate, repeatable cuts without measuring, marking, or having to keep the saw on the cut line. This tool has a long edge guide that follows the straight edge of the sheet you are cutting. Just lock the saw in at the measurement you want, using the measuring scale and then make your cut.
To get started you mount your saw to the universal sled (Can be used with most left-blade or right-blade saws). Once the saw is attached then slide the sled onto the aluminum rail. This is where you make your one-time calibration, and lock in your cut width using the measuring scale and precision cursor

Summary & Verdict on the Kreg Rip Cut
This is in our 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. So as you know, this model can make rip cuts and crosscuts up to 24" wide.
Like all these devices, they simply allow you to cut multiple pieces to the same size, with just one setup
The majority of buyers thought that this was a very useful tool to own. For us, it is a little bit limited in cutting width, but for what it can help you cut, it does a very good job. We also think it is a bit expensive, and don't see the full £45 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.
