Commonly referred to as a router sled or slab flattening jig, 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.
Went with the TrueTrac system be ause it looks heavier duty and ready to conquer the 5ft 12+ft slab we are going ro throw at it. Small/hometown build and all made in the USA... I will recommend to anyone that lays eyes on this rig!!
The hardest part about this system is setting up the table with a height and a width that you can actually work with depending on the size of the rough lumber slabs you’re going to be plaining . As you can see my table is a monster and allows me to plain 14 foot pieces of lumber. The problem I’ve encountered is to be able to get the slabs as close to the router rails as possible because the router does have its limits as far as how deep it can go and that’s just a matter of trial and error and for the most part it was error more than trial but we figured it out. Overall I’m very pleased with the system and the manufacturing of the materials provided to me. I’ve also gone with exactly what you recommended as far as a router bit and the slip it sliding compound both of which have worked extremely well. I would recommend this system to anyone who plans on plaining rough lumber.
So far so good with the router the table set up was a little longer than I had hoped and there’s definitely a learning curve but I’ve done a number of planks and it seems to be working just like you said it would
I have had my slab mill for 6 months now and have put it to good use. I can honestly say it has exceeded all my expectations. If you are looking to mill out slabs in a timely fashion this is it. I Would recommend this system to anyone with a large twisted chunk of wood. That needs to be flattened. Also have to add that they have hands down the best customer service I have ever received. Very helpful and easy to reach. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next I will be first in line for it. Thanks for all your hard work creating this awesome slab mill I sure have in joyed using it.
