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!
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.
This system is a "Manual Feed" option, where the user directly pushes the router back/forth across and down the length of the slab.
The RGS in general is also available with a "Threaded Cross Feed" that allows the user to pin the RGS sled to a threaded rod and move the router across the width of the system by simply turning a hand-crank wheel.
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.
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 ?
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!
Very happy with it, worth the investment IMO. Well made, does what it's intended to do. Easy assembly and good instructions.
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.
