The TrueTrac Router Gantry System is a solid step above the average home-built router sled in terms of accuracy and performance and includes industry-unique features that router sleds built with off-the-shelf components can't realistically match.

Only have a smaller project right now? This kit is the perfect place to start.

Working Area

  • Material Width: 22 in.
  • Material Length: 48 in.
  • Material Thickness: 2-1/4 in.

Priced competitively with a standard 13-inch capacity benchtop planer, this 22-inch by 48-inch capacity Router Gantry System gives you the capabilities of both a planar and a jointer in a single tool that can be dismantled and placed on a shelf when not in use. Plus, it makes that router you've probably already got that much more useful!

Modular in Length and Width

  • 27-1/2-inch or 55-inch extension kits readily available
  • Kits include rails and dovetail connectors

Designed to be modular from the start, the configurable working areas make tackling everything from charcuterie, cutting, or chess boards up to the largest slab, glue-up, countertop, bar, or epoxy resin project a breeze.

The RGS is easy to expand at any time to a larger working area utilizing either the 27-1/2 or 55-inch length extension kits. Plus, you can shrink it back down if the project after that one is smaller!

Optional Upgrades

  • Threaded Cross Feed

With the Threaded Cross Feed upgrade you can precisely control the placement of your router across the width of the RGS unit, opening a new realm of projects that are possible.

For planing, consistently step over for your next pass leading to improved surface finishes that require up to 80% less finish sanding.

For everything else, the Threaded option effectively turns the RGS into a router table flipped upside down. Effortlessly cut box border inlay grooves, create equally spaced flutes on beams or mantles, edge joint, or perform shaping operations with confidence.

This dual-sided shroud collects 90% of the dust and shavings from your RGS unit when paired with a 800-1000 CFM dust extractor utilizing an industry standard 4-inch diameter hose. Kit includes everything from the strip brushes upwards to a 2-1/2 to 4-inch wye fitting.

Lifetime Warranty

With high-precision CNC machined sliding components ensuring a lifetime of smooth-sliding planing capabilities, this system eliminates the guesswork and inconsistencies that can come with a DIY setup.

Additionally, we're always a phone call or email away to help you with any issues that may crop up. We stand behind our products and will do everything we can to make sure our products meet both yours and our expectations for fit and function.

Working as expected

The RGS is working as I expected, albeit a bit of a learning curve for me. I have some modifications I would like to make to my base, however that is more me than anything else since I needed to use it to understand what I wanted. The question I have is there something I can or should be using to lubricate the rails in order for the router portion to slide smoothly and evenly ?

Tru Trac Router Gantry System - Excellent Product!

My wife makes charcuterie boards with old wood and wood / epoxy. She has a planer, but it doesn't always fit the bill for flattening - some of her pieces are pretty twisted initially. Building jigs and anchoring pieces to flatted with a router was time and material consuming. This product is her new go-to. The set it up on a table, built a couple of low-profile frames inside it to wedge in a couple fairly standard sizes, then went to work. The speed of changing out work pieces is down to seconds and the gantry slides are smooth. She loves it and it's cut down on time and material usage exponentially! Great product - highly recommended!

Great tool, even better time saver.

I bought this to help with flattening end grain cutting boards. I was using my drum sander prior to this and found that it was taking so much time to do it, also after the drum sander, I had to spend even more time with the Orbital sander to get it ready for finish. With this and a decent slab flattening bit I've cut my flattening time down a whole lot, and I can go pretty to 80 grit immediately. great time saver. I would recommend this definitely.
