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.

Really good slab flattening!

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

Works just as advertised

Got the 48x96 threaded option. I’ve flattened cherry, maple and oak slabs so far. Smallest slab was 4x2 ft and largest was 10x4. Flattened each one with minimal ridges left to sand out. Very happy with the product.

Packaging

The unit works great with my large slabs, but the first thing that impressed me was the packaging: Everything arrived carefully hand wrapped and labeled with excellent instructions. It was packaged like fine artwork!

Great customer service; great product

I was really pleased with the detailed instructions for setting up the system. I hit a snag in getting the holes on the bottom of my router to line up properly on the router platform - Jacob stepped in and sent photos: problem solved. I was up and running and the sled worked like a dream. I am very satisfied and already thinking of all the different projects I can knock out

True Trac Simple Square

Product works as advertised but could be improved. Tool is rough around the edges and would be more user friendly if you didn't have to screw it on the track every time you want to use it. I would recommend rounding the edges and maybe anodizing the tool to make it not only look better but feel better while using.

TruTrac

I've used it for a while now and I love this track system. It works great. The replaceable strips are a little hard to install but other than that it's a great product. The only regret is I wish I had purchased this a long time ago.

Extremely useful tool

I am a retired physician who always has enjoyed woodworking. I retired to 85 acres, most in hardwoods, and began to make furniture from deadfalls and some harvested trees, hickory, maple, oak, and walnut. In addition, my large family began to request I help them with cabinet makiing; some I could make in my wordworking shop, some site built. Making long straight cuts was problematic; I decided I needed a track saw. The TrueTrack system seemed like a good option, had great reviews, and was a US based business. I bought the 8 ft option and got a battery driven 6 1/2 inch saw with the blade on the left to dedicate as my track saw. Following the instructions, I successfully got the baseplate installed on the saw, although I had to drill from the bottom up through the saw's baseplate to get the screws where I wanted them. I then made a plywood box to store the saw when not in use. While the baseplate is secure to the saw, I am worried that if it gets bumped, and certainly if it gets dropped, the baseplate will break or get out of adjustment. The box is big enough that I can store the track connectors, allen wrench and toggle clamps with the saw, and protect the saw in the back of my truck when I do on-site work.
I have now used the TrueTrac system for building a huge built-in cabinet in a bedroom. I am very happy with the quality of cuts I get, and no longer have to wrestle with long pieces of plywood. I get edges that are better than those I got on a table saw and have no danger of kick-back when cross cutting. My only, very minor complaint, is that the anti-chip strips are so loose in their groves that they move out when the track is moved and may get broken. They do work well in maintaining their position on the plywood while I am cutting, even without the toggle clamps. It is now easy to mark for a cut and position the track for a cut exactly where I want it.
I am DELIGHTED with the quality of this product and am happy to recommend it

useful clamps

As a new user of my TrueTrac I was unsure how well the guide track would stay in place. Especially when ripping 8 ft pieces, I have additional confidence when I use the clamps. They also help me place the guide in the exact right place as they will hold one end when I adjust the other. I was puzzled by the fact that they seemed to get out of adjustment (tightness of clamp) after a few uses, but then found out the bolts holding them to the base were loosening. After tightening them, they held their adjustment. I'm glad I spent the money to have them when I need them.
