Discover New Ways to Conquer Your Cuts
Kreg Tool Tips: Cutting & Measuring by
There are so many ways to make the cuts you need for wood projects. Track saw for breaking down plywood. Table saw for rip cuts. Miter saw for angled cuts. (We could keep going.) The bottom line is that they all come with their own upsides, and their own limitations.
But what if you could have one system that makes all these cuts – and more? What if you had one place to tackle cuts in plywood, hardwood, and dimensional lumber? We’ll show you how to get the cuts you need and make the most of your workspace with an all-in-one cutting center like the Kreg Adaptive Cutting System.
Get the Cuts You Need
Picture this: building a project without calibrating multiple saws, switching between tools to make different cuts, or moving workpieces all over your workspace. Instead, you could make every cut you need with a single integrated system.
You might struggle with these exact challenges. Or they’re what has been preventing you from taking your project building to the next level. Maybe you’re itching to work beyond boards of standard widths.
Or you’re looking for a more precise method of cutting dimensional lumber to the lengths you need. Even making angle cuts, like miters and bevels, could be something you’ve wanted to incorporate more.
Whatever your cutting needs are, using a multi-purpose cutting center like the Adaptive Cutting System means you can do things that might not have been possible before. And you don’t have to sacrifice precision or safety. This system lets you concentrate on your craft instead of being concerned about your cuts.
Optimize Your Workspace
Have you ever gotten halfway through a project and realized your workspace wasn’t quite right for everything you needed to do? We’ve all been there a time or two. You need flexibility in how you work so you can tackle large tasks – like breaking down larger panels – in a space that makes sense.
But with a lot of saws, a portability option can sometimes come with a price – like limited quality or functionality. Not with the Adaptive Cutting System. It’s designed to fold up quickly, so you can set up shop anywhere: the garage, the driveway, or the backyard. Plus, the Plunge Saw and Guide Track works great off the Project Table, too. Wherever you want to work, you will get the same top-notch track-guided cuts every time.
Adapt to Your Work
You’re no one-trick pony. Your projects are full of different kinds of cuts, techniques, and materials. So you need a tool that can handle whatever you throw at it. Plywood, hardwood, and dimensional lumber? Rip cuts, crosscuts, angle cuts? The Adaptive Cutting System can handle it all. It works in multiple configurations – like with the fully assembled Project Table, with Extension Brackets for a larger work surface, or with just the Plunge Saw and Guide Track paired together off the table.
Now Take On Those Next-Level Projects
Chris Salomone used his new Adaptive Cutting System to make all the cuts when building this mid-century modern plywood console. His first impressions below.
"I think that the system hits a sweet spot that makes it a legitimate stand-in for a lot of tools. Pretty much any track saw system is versatile. They make it a lot simpler and safer to cut long angles that would be really dangerous or even impossible on a table saw. That said, they are usually a lot more laborious to set up for quick cuts, and way slower and less accurate for making repeatable cuts.
And that's where the Adaptive Cutting System shines in my opinion. It's got all of the versatility, and then some, of any other plunging circular saw that rides on a track that I've ever used. But because of the table and jigs, it is way easier to set up quick rip-cuts and crosscuts accurately, and brings a level of repeatability that, typically you'd really only find on a saw with a fence - such as a table saw."
