The SpeTool Cratos Series Machinist-Grade Router Sled, also known as the Wood Slab Flattening Mill, is the ultimate solution for woodworking enthusiasts looking for exceptional value, easy assembly, and precise performance. Crafted for small wood shops and DIY warriors with limited space, it offers a cost-effective alternative to expensive CNC machines and industrial planers, which can be far beyond the budget of many, ranging from $10,000 to $70,000.
Constructed from 6065 high-strength anodized aluminum alloy, this router sled is built to last and resists deformation over time, ensuring a durable investment.
The ease of assembly is a standout feature, with a single person being able to complete installation in just about 30 minutes.
Thanks to laser-drilled pre-set positions, no tedious leveling is required.
With a maximum processing width of 120cm and a maximum processing height of 21cm, this router sled can handle a wide range of woodworking tasks. The base plate provides ample support, measuring 13x28cm.
The inclusion of non-marring thermoplastic rubber wheels ensures that the sled moves smoothly without vibration, preserving the quality of your work and reducing noise.
This router sled features three modes to meet various processing needs: a basic mode for thin boards, a block mode, and a fixed position mode for thick wood or wooden stakes. It's suitable for wood slab flattening, and resurfacing, as well as slotting and grooving.
The laser pre-set position for the Z-axis makes height adjustments effortless and precise, preventing slipping during operation. Two base plates are included, one with pre-set precise holes and another for DIY customization according to your router.
To enhance versatility and precision, this router sled jig adds two L-Carriages and adjustable knobs for work in the XY-axis directions. Four pre-set Z-axis positions allow you to fine-tune the sled's height, with each step set at 1-1/4 inches.
