TrueTrac Dado Jig / Router Jig

Sale price Price $ 79.99 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!

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!!!
