The 3D Tech Router Plane Sled is a robust manual router planing sled for flattening large pieces of stock such as tree slabs, etc. for table tops and furniture. It has no motors or other CNC components, and requires no power other than the router itself. It is strictly manual operation.
The base model is 1000x1000mm overall, and has an X-Y sled mounted on tracks. The router mount is on the X axis, and it rolls left and right on 4 metal V-wheels for durability. X axis movement is about 28″ or 750mm. The router mount can be customized to fit a smaller router to slightly increase the travel. The X sled just lifts out of the main gantry, for ease of bit changes and maintenance.
The Y axis consists of a large gantry which supports the X sled, and also rolls in the Y direction on two small tracks that bolt to an MDF panel which acts as the base. Each end plate is 1/4″ aluminum, precision machined with 4 separate height adjustments to allow use with any thickness of lumber. Each end plate rides on two metal v-wheels in the Y axis tracks. The base is user supplied, and can be set up to be easily placed on a workbench or table, and stowed vertically against a wall when not in use.
All parts are just held together by gravity, the weight of each piece holds it in it’s track All slides move extremely easily, almost frictionless, minimizing fatigue and maximizing versatility. The base rails in the Y plane can easily be extended in 1000 mm increments to allow for the size to be expanded if required. It would just require a larger base sheet of MDF.
