Kreg® Accu-Cut 48'' Track Guide for Circular Saws
Make straight, accurate, splinter-free cuts! With just a circular saw (sold separately) and the included Universal Saw Base and Accu-Cut™ track, you can rip, crosscut and make angled cuts up to 48'' long in plywood, MDF, and other sheet goods—just lay the track on the sheet and slide the saw across. The track keeps the saw moving straight and stays in place without the need for clamps. Setup couldn't be easier—just line up the track with your cut line. Dual guide strips provide zero-clearance protection to prevent splintered cuts. No straight edge on your sheet? No problem. With the Accu-Cut, a straight reference edge is not required, since the track itself is the reference edge. The Accu-Cut™ is portable, too, so you can take your saw to the workpiece and cut with precision, rather than having to handle heavy sheets on a table saw.
- Rip, cross cut, and make angled cuts up to 48'' long in plywood, MDF, and panels
- Take your saw to the material instead of having to take your material to the saw
- Simply align the track with your marks to make accurate cuts
- Track stays in place without clamps thanks to anti-slip guide strips

I am not sure what type of material is used for part that attaches to the saw and the start line up. I have had too many bad experiences with plastic like parts that turn brittle with time and, as a consequence brake easily. I am especially concerned with the clamps that are used to mount the saw. Both of the plastic like parts have serious stress points when in use. The back of the saw mount hangs loose making a lever fulcrum at the clamp and the start guide has a lever fulcrum where it meets the track. Tiny forces at 10 or so inches from the fulcrum at multiplied several fold. I regard these two points as serious design flaws.

I was tired of having to clamp my long level onto the workpiece to get an accurate cut. Kreg makes the claim that the non-slip base doesn't require clamping; that, is complete and utter nonsense. You cannot use this device without clamping it to the workpiece. If I have to clamp the Accu-Cut to the workpiece, what have I gained? I might as well clamp my old 4' level onto the workpiece as I alway have and save myself $80. I simply can't see any advantage to using this device.
I cannot say with any certainty if the saw will be compatible with the Accu-Cut's sled. Here are a few things to be mindful of when determining if a saw will be compatible with the sled. Make sure that the saw base is at least 5-1/2 to 6 inches wide or more. There should be at least a 1/2 inch or more of open space on the front of the saw base or shoe across the with of the saw's base plate so that the sled can latch on to it. Some saws have a tilt mechanism on them and it consumes a lot of space. If the saw base plate curves upward around the edges, make sure that it is no higher than 3/8 of an inch. Avoid worm drive saws and saws with plastic blade guards. Saws with plastic blade guards creates excessive vibration.
I am sorry to say, the Accu-Cut is not designed to be used with a Jig Saw.
