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!

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.
