Router Boss Machines
A Router Jig and So Much More
Router Boss allows modern woodworkers to create the same traditional joinery in their creations as master craftsmen from centuries past, but more quickly and easily using a power router instead of specialized hand tools. While power tools can remove the drudgery of routine tasks and provide the ability to carry out work that would otherwise require a lot of hand tool skills, you really need a tool that meets all your requirements and doesn’t limit your creativity. By providing a flexible management system for both the router and wood, Router Boss gives you the seamless control you need without limiting what you can do. Router Boss excels where typical router jigs fall flat, by making all different kinds of joinery including mortises, tenons, dovetails, and more.
Professional Grade Results, Old World Charm
In a day and age when handmade furniture is a novelty, hobbyists and professional woodworkers alike will enjoy the precision and beauty of the pieces they create with Router Boss. Regardless of how you pursue woodworking, Router Boss will increase your productivity while still producing exquisitely precise and beautiful traditional woodwork.

Safety and Precision in Every Direction
Available in three different models, Router Boss works with a sliding bar that secures the wood and prevents it from coming out of your grasp. Like a 3-axis milling machine, variance in cutting direction and different angles is the key to Router Boss’ versatility. You maintain full visibility while making your cuts, which reduces mistakes and resources wasted. An optional plunge-assist bar provides quick direct control over your cut depth when using a plunge router. Simply put, Router Boss is a multi-functional milling tool that will reduce the number of tools you require, save space in your shop, and increase production and quality of work.
Special Add-ons to Supercharge Your Router Boss
Router Boss by itself is capable of a vast array of woodworking tasks, and its custom add-on accessories takes its versatility to the next level. The accessories add work-holding capabilities and help you to employ repetitive positioning when working on multiple pieces. Router Boss is even capable of functioning as a router table, allowing for decorative profiles and grooves. To obtain all that Router Boss does, you’d need to purchase multiple other tools that could have you moving all over your shop with independent setups on each.
See Your Cuts as You Make Them
A major benefit of Router Boss is its ability to show the cut you are making, while you are making it. You can cut to a scribed line as with hand tools, but with machine control. Router Boss also works with scales and cursors, story sticks, and even your computer-made templates. Stops in the T-tracks and base plate help you effortlessly position the cuts you desire, and built-in laser crosshairs and LED lights illuminate the work and show the exact center of your cut. Optional digital scales complete with LCD displays will guide your Router Boss in the most precise cuts attainable on any machine.
With Router Boss, You’re in Control
Simply put, Router Boss means freedom. Unlike typical jigs, you don’t have to follow templates or adhere to limiting measurements to make the joint you desire.
Router Boss’ joint variations and precise cuts give you more control than any router jig on the market. Even its installation gives you a choice: wall mounted or bench. Front and rear dust collection with shop vac hose connections keeps your shop air clean and minimizes mess. A fully illustrated manual with setup instructions and examples of popular joints is included with every purchase.
A Bit of This, A Bit of That
To create beautiful traditional joinery, you only need a Router Boss, plunge router, and the right bits. You can use any router and bits, but we readily recommend router bits with longer ½” shanks to use with Router Boss, such as our Craftsman Gallery bits. A DeWalt 625 router is a great choice to work with Router Boss. Our Quick Change Chucks will make bit changes quick and efficient.
