TrueTrac Dado Jig / Router Jig

Sale price Price $ 74.99 Regular price $ 99.99 Unit price  per 

Utilize this track saw adapter plate with your handheld router to cut custom sized dados and rabbits, or lock the pivot plate do straight line routing.

Dado width capacity is 1/4 inch to 1 inch. This accessory utilizes the exact same track as all of our other products and features a spreading mechanism to remove any play perpendicular to the track itself.

This router jig allows you to measure the wood that you wish to make a dado for, accounting for any and all thickness variations due to unique planing or variations found in all plywood lumber thicknesses. Use either a 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch diameter straight or spiral bit with this system.

The small plates with 1/4 and 3/8 engraved on them correspond to the bit diameter in use. Currently, only 1/4 and 3/8 are available. These small plates are what limit the swing of the pivoting plate after measuring your workpiece and accurately control the width of the dado.

Your router mounts to the plate via a 1 inch Porter-Cable style guide bushing, included with the kit. Your router base plate needs to have the recess available for attaching the guide bushing. Optionally, you may also mount your router directly to the pivot plate in lieu of the base plate already on your router.

A clamping mechanism of some sort is required to hold the track in place while using the dado/router jig, either our E-series clamps, Trac clamps, or a standard bar clamp will work well.

Exactly what I expected, excellent customer service!

I have a bunch of sheet goods I needed to cut dados in. I took the necessary time to get router centered on the base plate and attached it direct. I bought a 3/8” downcut spiral bit to cut my 3/4” dados. It works flawlessly as advertised with the adjustability to fine tune the width of the joint. I also used a piece of 1/4” plywood as a spacer that I can line up on the mark and butt against the track to get dead on positioning of track to joint, repeatable every time. Will make a spacer for every bit I will use. Would buy it again in a heartbeat! I feel all their products are value priced and the quality and accuracy is heads and tails above the competition! A well thought out product with features no others have! Lastly, Jacob has always followed up with all my purchases to make sure I’m satisfied with the product! Who else does that!!! Keep up the R&D, look forward to what they come up with next!

Perfect cuts every time

It took me about an hour to set it up. I drilled the plate mounting holes from the bottom ,plate, side, seemed easier to me. I countersunk the mounting screws in the plate. I checked the plate to blade with the included jig and a small flashlight after every drill and screw. I broke down a full sheet of plywood and checked every cut with a Starrett tape measure and a framing square and everyone was perfect. I don't do much sheet goods, mostly hardwood, but this thing is excellent at sheet goods. I just lay the sheet on an old piece of 3/8 inch, support the overhang, make one small mark on each side of the sheet, set the track on the sheet on the marks, set the saw on the track and saw. I keep my left hand on the left side of the track just to know if the track shifts, it never does. I set the blade 1/16 lower than the thickness of the sheet. i think what amazes me is you just lay the sheet down and cut it, no fence no miter gauge, just a tape measure and pencil. 8 pieces all told.

Wish I Bought This SOONER

Such a great system. Really works great w my Triton and leaves the slab so much smoother than my previous set up. Greatly reduced my sanding times after flattening so I can get to the fun stuff! Great product and Jacob did a great job communicating during a supply chain issue. Higy recommend him and the product.

Nice and easy

This is a well made storage device and I can easily keep all the gear in the bag for easy transport.

Wonderful customer service

Thank you for the caring and good service, I have never been so impressed, with the good products and very good quality. Thank you again.

Cantilever clamps

Jacob, these clamps make using the track saw attachment a breeze. Use them on everything I build that has a straight side too it.
