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.

Excellent product

Have a lot of slabs to flatten and decided I needed a good way. Did a bunch of research and decided on the Truetrack system. Built the frame and mounted the rails and went to work. I was really surprised at how easy it was with beautiful results.

The only issue I'm having is when I plane long boards the sled seems to bind up the more I push it. The sled is 100% square but after 1-2 feet it gets very hard to move.

David,

Thank you for the feedback!

The force required for movement should be pretty uniform the entire span of motion, so there's two things that may be causing the bridge to stick during motion. The first is to flip the bridge over and check the long runners. There are two small shoulders 'above' the bevels that help prevent racking. I've had a few that have closed up after machining and those shoulders start to act like a brake if it hits an area of the extrusion that's a couple thou larger than the rest. Usually you'll see rub marks on those small shoulders at the extreme ends of the long runners if this is the case.

Secondly, if the runners look pristine with no rub marks, leave one long axis securely bolted in place. Loosen one end of the opposite long axis rail by a 1/2 turn or something small like that to allow a hint of movement at one end of that long axis. Move the bridge and see if the movement is easier, as sometimes a miniscule warp in the support system can pull the rails just enough to cause excessive drag.

Let me know if either of those is the case. If it's the runners, you can hit the shoulders with some sand paper to knock them back and use that as a verification. Doesn't impact functionality at all, simply adding a few thou clearance to counter material movement.

Thank you again for letting me know there was an issue!

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.

Great milling table

Using this table has been amazingly easy. Instructions provided are clear and unambiguous, and the individual parts fit very well together. Prompt delivery is a bonus.

Wish I'd gotten this years ago

I have cut sheet goods every sloppy, haphazard, and dangerous way there is. Those days are in my past. I will no longer dread breaking down a full 4x8 sheet. I will no longer struggle with laying out or guiding my cut. This is the best money I've spent in a long time.

Directions are perfectly clear, and even written with some personality. And made in the U.S.A.! What's not to like?

Straight Line Ripping Rough Lumber

I bought a bunch of rough sawn lumber and instead of attempting to use jointer to put a straight edge on each piece, I used your track system to accomplish the task. This actually had several benefits.

1. The track method saved an enormous amount of time.
2. It minimized the wood lost in the process of placing a single straight edge on each piece. I simply placed the tack down on each piece of rough sawn lumber and clamped it down after adjusting so the cut would remove the minimal amount of wood over the entire length of the piece.
3. The edge of the cut was smooth (no saw marks) and straighter than could be accomplished over the shorter horizontal surface area of the jointer table.
4. The cut edge was as smooth as you would expect coming out of the jointer milling process.

I highly recommend this tool for all wood workers.

Great System

Really impressed with the quality and ease of use/functionality. Need to build out the garage shop and until I have the some of the equipment installed, I need to use all portable equipment. The truetrac system is easy and accurate. Great purchase. I think i will add a couple of more pieces.

Worked great for ripping some 4x8 siding panels

I had to cut down some 4x8 siding panels and using the extension along with my existing 24" Pro-Series track worked great! Made nice straight cuts and was much faster than trying to cut it free-hand. Well worth the money.
