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.

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.

Haven't had time.

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!

Fantastic system for transforming your circular saw!

After installing the saw base on my DeWalt circular saw (along with a new blade), I have primarily used my TrueTrac for small projects so far. In fact, it is getting much more use than I expected! The main reason I purchased it was to rip long boards cleanly to build skin on frame canoes. I was hoping it would give better results and be less dangerous than using the table saw. This has exceeded my expectations--each cut is perfect! I purchased the 12ft kit as well as an additional 2ft section of track, and this is now my go to saw when I need precision.

Thank you! Well worth every penny.

Love my TrueTrac!

Nothing to say. Exactly as advertised. Great customer service and follow up.

TrueTrac Cantilever Style Clamps

Truetrac, still my favorite after all these years!

I teach design and construction at a large state university. In and out of the classroom, I'm a designer and a maker.

A few years ago I picked up a truetrac system and I couldn't be happier with it. I'd tried several competitors and had issues with each of them but was really pleased with truetracks products when it arrived: it's solid, perfectly engineered and feels seriously legit. I have use this system so much over the past few years and just wanted to come back with an update to let everyone know I still think it's an excellent, excellent product. I had mine originally set up on a D-walt until the saw gave out on me, now I have it on a dedicated Metabo and it's still perfect. Aside from doing everything I'd hoped it would (I work with students in the field building structures for local not-for-profit organizations. We have modest means and portability is everything for us. What we can't throw into the back of a car and set up on sawhorses just isn't going to work for us). The thing I wasn't counting on are the new directions (seriously) that we can explore with our designs. Our structures since true track has joined our team are so much more interesting from a functional and aesthetic purposes. We taper roof joists to carry the necessary loads but tapering off to a beautiful form: we never worked like this before because a miter saw and a table saw just cannot do what truetrack can.

Truetrack - we love you! Years of use (and student site abuse) and you are still an awesome part of our little bag of tricks and trade secrets. Thank you for helping us expand our horizons.

Time saver

We attached a Milwaukee 10 1/4 circular saw to it. We were working with aluminum panels and the Trac it self wouldn't side or move , just awesome! Our materials were 6" thick and had to make to passes to cut it. The True Trac system made it super easy!!!
