TrueTrac Dado Jig / Router Jig

Sale price Price $116.00 Regular price $137.00 Unit price  per 

Utilize this track saw adapter plate with your handheld router to cut custom sized dados and rabbits, or lock the pivot plate do straight line routing.

Dado width capacity is 1/4 inch to 1 inch. This accessory utilizes the exact same track as all of our other products and features a spreading mechanism to remove any play perpendicular to the track itself.

This router jig allows you to measure the wood that you wish to make a dado for, accounting for any and all thickness variations due to unique planing or variations found in all plywood lumber thicknesses. Use either a 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch diameter straight or spiral bit with this system.

The small plates with 1/4 and 3/8 engraved on them correspond to the bit diameter in use. Currently, only 1/4 and 3/8 are available. These small plates are what limit the swing of the pivoting plate after measuring your workpiece and accurately control the width of the dado.

Your router mounts to the plate via a 1 inch Porter-Cable style guide bushing, included with the kit. Your router base plate needs to have the recess available for attaching the guide bushing. Optionally, you may also mount your router directly to the pivot plate in lieu of the base plate already on your router.

A clamping mechanism of some sort is required to hold the track in place while using the dado/router jig, either our E-series clamps, Trac clamps, or a standard bar clamp will work well.

The Dado Jig Works as Described

I started using the router jig as instructed. At one point while starting a new cut I let the router get away from me and damaged the jig. I decided to mount the router to the jig and the rest of the project went without a problem. The router jig with the TrueTrac system is a great combination. Thank You for a very good product.

Exactly what I expected, excellent customer service!

I have a bunch of sheet goods I needed to cut dados in. I took the necessary time to get router centered on the base plate and attached it direct. I bought a 3/8” downcut spiral bit to cut my 3/4” dados. It works flawlessly as advertised with the adjustability to fine tune the width of the joint. I also used a piece of 1/4” plywood as a spacer that I can line up on the mark and butt against the track to get dead on positioning of track to joint, repeatable every time. Will make a spacer for every bit I will use. Would buy it again in a heartbeat! I feel all their products are value priced and the quality and accuracy is heads and tails above the competition! A well thought out product with features no others have! Lastly, Jacob has always followed up with all my purchases to make sure I’m satisfied with the product! Who else does that!!! Keep up the R&D, look forward to what they come up with next!

Track saw setup

Well made products that I anticipate using more. Excellent supporting information and videos as well prompt response to questions and concerns. I got call back around 8PM to a submitted question by a helpful engineer.

So much better than a chalk line

Cutting usable lumber from western red cedar slabs. Trac is true and smooth. Will order another saw adapter plate for a larger saw.

Great system and amazing service.

We love our router gantry system. It arrived well packaged and was easy to set up. We had some questions in the beginning and received a response to our email quickly .

I have used these clamps with the True Trac track on a variety of projects. Very secure hold and ease of use. Also have used it on different thickness pieces - easy to adjust. High quality design

Impressive

Fantastic quality! Easy to assemble and I was very impressed with the quality of the machining on the parts. Supper snugg fit with no slop. Some of the bolts were pretty tight going in but I'm also not worried about them working their way out.
