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.

UPDATE: I added a few photos of this item attached to my DeWalt 20v Max circular saw. I've read quite a few reviews that saw this item didn't fit their saw or the item doesn't work properly so I hope these photos help.
1) If you look at pic #2 you'll see that I used a screw hole meant to secure a regular circular saw rip fence and then drilled a "dimple" hole in the saw base to create a spot for the 2nd screw to settle into. This allowed the Kreg Rip-Cut to attach very securely to the saw and prevents the saw and Rip-Cut from getting sloppy. If your saw doesn't have holes like mine, simply attach the sled part of the Rip-Cut to your saw, clamp it in place and drill a couple small holes in the base of your saw.Read more ›
I still grade this tool a "5" even with the problem. Outstanding customer service always trumps a rare problem. Buy this little rip tool, it saves time, no tedious measuring or using long clamps that can and do stress out of alignment. My darling helped me rip 3 full sheets of Cabinet Birch plywood into 16" and 24" sections taking only 20 minutes to do. Outstanding! And the edges were square, with no burn marks or slippage of the saw blade. Kudos to Kreg, another winner.
Assembly is surprisingly complicated. It shouldn't be beyond you if you do a lot of building, but I have absolutely no idea why the little plastic clamping thing with all the little parts couldn't be pre-assembled in the package.
Attaching it to the saw involves driving a couple of pointed set screws into the metal plate on the saw itself. Depending on where your saw's angle adjustment levers fall, tightening these down in a suitable location may be very, very difficult, and it's never going to be super secure on the sled as there's really nothing more than friction holding it in place. The more you tighten, the more the attachment brackets want to lift up out of the plastic, and it's not difficult to imagine them busting right out of it, ruining the entire thing.
Actually making cuts is a two-handed affair--one to push the saw and the other to make sure the guide bar runs flush against the edge of the board throughout. If you're making a very narrow cut, this will place one hand very, very, very close to the blade. Be extremely careful.
If you're cutting large sheets of things the way they do in the demo videos, it's pretty easy to clamp them down and make your cuts. If you're ripping narrower boards, you're going to find that there is absolutely no way that you can clamp them down to anything and still get this guide to traverse the length of the cut--it's just too darn long and it will always hit the clamps.Read more ›
With all Kreg products, you will find that the Rip Cut comes in a good package with all loose items secured in heavy bags and as usual, everything in it's place. The device assembles easily with a few screws, nuts and plastic / poly parts. The saw base is attached to the blue Kreg saw base using a pair of metal hold down clips with pointed set screws. The saw base then slides onto the straight edge and with the friction clamp, it holds your saw at your set distance with no problem.
Using the Rip Cut is fast and easy. It's a good idea to readjust the red pointer every time you remount the saw to the base but the process is fast and simple. I just measured from the edge of the sheet product over 12" and marked it with a pencil. Place the saw on the mark (or off to the blade width side) with the edge guide firmly against the edge of the sheet and slide the red indicator to match up with the 12" mark on the straight edge. Tighten the screws on the red indicator and you are good to go. One nice thing is that if you want to make a rip, just slide the base along the straight edge, lock in your distance with the cam lock and cut away. If you want to make a cross cut or other cut that does not need the straight edge or guide, simply release the cam lock, slide the saw with the blue base attached all the way to the end and off of the straight edge and viola...Read more ›
