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.
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.
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.
From the packaging to the assembly, attention to detail and quality of the product is remarkable.
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!
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
