Router Not Included

The TrueTrac Router Gantry System (RGS) is an easy and accurate way to simultaneously surface and flatten live edge slabs, epoxy tables or counter tops, bar surfaces, table glue-ups, and much more!

With an industry-unique Threaded Cross Feed this system allows you complete and utter control over your handheld router, allowing you to bring the router to the work rather than the work to the router. Simply use the provided thumb screws to securely fasten the RGS Adapter Plate to the custom nuts on the threaded rod installed in the gantry rail. By turning the provided hand-crank, you may now accurately, safely, and easily index your router across the 'transverse' or 'bridge' of the gantry system.

This allows for consistent edge jointing capabilities with straight or fluted router bits, being able to produce equally spaced fluted columns or door frames using a ball-nose bit, rabbit cuts on large projects, and accurate dado grooves using standard sized bits.

Our 100% custom American-made and purpose designed heavy-duty extrusions are expandable to virtually any width or length desired and will easily support your 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 HP router without bending, bowing, warping, or twisting during normal use.

All sliding components are 100% CNC machined from Acetal Copolymer, also referred to as Delrin, which is an engineered plastic specifically designed for sliding friction applications and holds machining tolerances wonderfully.

Simply stated, our system is professionally designed and purposefully built to give you years of trouble-free use and is fully backed by our lifetime money-back guarantee.

The RGS is available in a variety of lengths and widths to suit your project needs and is always able to be expanded later.

RGS Adapter Plate comes pre-drilled for a variety of routers. Please see the list in the product photos. Blank plates with a 1/4" diameter hole pre-drilled in the center are available upon request via phone or email.

Great Product!

I purchased the router gantry system a few weeks ago and used it on my first project to flatten a quarter sawn white oak dining table top.

Just wanted to let you know everything worked great and I could not have flattened the top nearly as easily or got it as flat without the gantry system. A few pictures are below.

Great product!

Got the 4'x8' router sled set up and it works amazingly! Putting it together was simple and straight forward. The product itself is very high quality I couldn't be happier.

Haven't had time.

Sorry to say I haven't had time to set it up as this spring has been a whirl-wind of things going on. I am sure that when I do I may have some questions, but for now it is still in the box. Not much help but thanks for caring!

Really good slab flattening!

I did try another system before using this and had real issues with getting the boards level on that so dumped it and tried this.
The TrueTrac system is great and I am thrilled with this system and have now flattened 2 boards with it and have a 10 foot walnut slab waiting to get on! I really like the system
A couple of pointers
1. With advice from TrueTracI I used a touch of Johnsons polish to make it glide smoother.
2. I also use the Brora stands underneath for support.
3. Don't trust to the spirit level on the router holder - I found my own 4 foot spirit level gave a better result.
4. I added a 2x6 does the sides of my table for rigidity and give a bit of height and then add boards underneath to bring to the correct height before routing
5. Do get the threaded system - helps to keep you on line - a simple idea but a good solution - I give it 5 turns between each run
6. I got the extension which works smoothly
VERY happy with this and would recommend it over other systems.
I have a big Makata router for this - it didn't fit the standard screw holes but that was no problem TrueTrac sent me a blind replacement and it works perfect

Just what I needed

Ripping down plywood on sawhorses or a table saw has always been awkward even with another person assisting. The expandable table was easy to set up and feels solid when cutting large or small pieces of wood. No more need for assistance. Breaks down easily and stores completely out of the way.

Finally able to use

I purchased my TruTrac system a few months ago and was finally able to use it. I bought a dedicated saw for it and set everything up when I got the system. I finally used it today and I am very pleased. I had to cut some plywood down and what a difference. After squaring an end, I was able to make the cuts I needed in less than half the time it would have taken. Precision is built in and no more variation due to the user. If I can use it, it must be idiot proof. Thanks for a great system. I’ll be calling when I wear this one out.

Dust Collector

Does it make a difference on how far the saw blade is forward into the zero clearance dust chute? I centered the sole plate of my Makita saw on your track guide so the sole is just over a inch back from the front of the guide. My saw curf is about 1 inch long on the top of the dust chute.

Russell,

Honestly, kind of - If the saw blade isn’t cutting into the nozzle it won’t be as effective, as the concept is trying to keep the dust creation point inside the actual vacuum nozzle itself so all of the fine dust is extracted.

That being said as long as the blade has cut into the nozzle it should function just fine!

TrueTrac Pro-Series 4' Starter Kit

Love my router sled!

My sled kit with the threaded rod insert has been amazing. I love how few moving parts there are, and how sturdy the rails are!
