Ripping down large panels into smaller more manageable work pieces is one of the trickiest, most intimidating, and expensive steps of any wood project. The Kreg Rip-Cut (model KMA2675) is an incredibly handy tool that speeds and simplifies the process of ripping down large plywood and MDF panels. No measuring, no marking, no chalk lines — the Rip-Cut quickly and easily attaches to almost any circular saw, letting you cut pieces from 1/8-inch up to 24 inches wide with tremendous accuracy.
The Rip-Cut is a no-nonsense, straightforward, accessory for your circular saw. It features a durable design including a solid aluminum guide rail, an easy-to-read adjustable scale, and a reversible guide arm that works whether you're left or right handed and whether your blade is on the left or right side of the saw. It's an incredibly easy, precise, and affordable way to break down large panels for almost any project.

About Kreg Tool Company
In 1986 Craig Sommerfeld was in the process of building his house and needed to find a way to attach his doweled face frames to his kitchen cabinet carcase members. A tool and die maker by trade, but a woodworker out of necessity, Craig had a problem. Not wanting to nail them on and then fill with putty, he designed and built "Craig's Jig" which was a single-hole pocket hole jig crafted from steel and aluminum that allowed him to attach the face frames from the inside of the cabinet where the joint could be hidden from view.
In the intervening years, Kreg Tool Company has emerged as the leader in Pocket Hole Technology. From the manual Kreg Jig to the fully-automatic Pro Series machines, Kreg offers a simple solution that has changed the way thousands of woodworkers join wood.
