If you’re looking for an accurate way to do crosscuts in and out of your shop you should have a look at Kreg’s new Crosscut Station. It’s a great problem solver, providing an accurate way to crosscut material up to 12” wide using your circular saw. It works with left or right blade circular saws.
After setting up the Kreg Crosscut Station you’ll place your saw on the metal rails and make a cut, going through the two fences on the station. The kerfs that are now in the fences give you a perfect line of cut indicator, showing you the exact position of the saw blade. All you have to do is put a mark near the edge of your stock, showing where you want to make the cut, align the mark with the kerf in the fence, and you’re ready to go. No fiddling trying to align the mark with your saw blade.
The Kreg Crosscut Station works great for 90-degree cuts, and, with the addition of a fence, also allows you to do cuts up to 45-degrees.
The station has support wings that fold in when you’re not using them, and fold out to provide support for long pieces. The pucks on the ends of the foldable wings can be removed and positioned anywhere you need them to support longer pieces. The jig also has hold-down clamps, and they do a great job of securing your material.
This is a very handy tool for accurate crosscuts in and out of your shop.
Kreg has also introduced new pocket hole jigs, and they’re definitely worth a look.
