Great projects start with high-quality cuts and with the Kreg Rip-Cut you can cut with confidence and precision. The Kreg Rip-Cut Circular Saw Edge Guide turns an ordinary circular saw into a unique precision edge-guided cutting tool.

The Rip-Cut easily makes straight, accurate, repeatable cuts - without measuring, marking, or having to keep the saw on the cut line. The Rip-Cut does this with a long edge guide that follows the straight edge of the sheet you are cutting. All you need to do is lock the saw in at the measurement you want - up to 610 mm using the built-in measuring scale - and then make your cut.

Circular saws don’t have effective guides that keep them moving straight along a cut line. Plus, it can be difficult to see the cutting path of the blade. Together, these things make it challenging to keep a saw on your desired cut. The Rip-Cut solves these problems by using an edge guide to keep your saw moving straight.

With a built-in measuring scale, you don’t have to measure and mark each cut, either. Just lock the saw sled at your desired cut width, and you're all set, whether you need to cut one piece or make multiple pieces of the exact same size. Plus, the Rip-Cut makes it easier to cut down large sheets by yourself.

The use, simply mount your saw to the universal sled - it accepts most left-or right-blade saws - and slide the sled onto the aluminum rail. After a simple one-time calibration, you can lock in your cut width (from 25mm to 610mm) using the measuring scale and precision cursor.Then, just hold the edge guide against the edge of your sheet as you guide the saw. You’ll get straight, accurate, repeatable cuts easily every time.

The Rip-Cut is easy and intuitive for a novice to use, but robust enough for professional use. Because it eliminates the need to keep the saw straight and the need to manually guide the saw along a cut line, the Rip-Cut is ideal for less-experienced circular saw users and is also great for making professionals faster and more productive by locking in the desired cut size and eliminating the need to measure and mark each cut.
