One Pass Installation Kit

The Futures One-Pass Install Kit is used to install the Futures ILT Fin system prior to lamination.  This kit is compatible with the Makita RTO700 & RTO701c models. The 2 bits included in the kit are use to cut the trough and the flange separate.  It is typically used for pre-lamination fin installs.   The One Pass Kit requires users to change bits, or have two routers dedicated to installation.   

The Kit is designed for larger volume production in mind.  For smaller jobs, or post-lamination installs Futures recommends using the 2-Pass Installation Kit.

  • Jig Plate
  • ILT Router Slides
  • 3/4” One Pass Bit
  • 1/2” One Pass Bit
  • Timmy Tool
  • EVA Shims (x4)

1-Shot Install Kit

The Futures 1-Shot Kit features an adjustable jig plate, allowing users to easily adapt their plunge router to the 8" or 10.75" Fin Boxes.  From the carbide bit, to the machined Aluminum jig plate, this kit is built to last.   1-Shot channel style fin boxes are compatible with most surf fin manufacturers.  

The Futures 1-Shot box is molded as one solid piece with a CNC'd fin channel, rather than the more common two piece design, eliminating any potential for failure.  The 1-Shot box is completely resistant to leaks and made using top of the line materials that have an incredible bond to both polyester and epoxy resins.   1-Shot Boxes are available in Black and White and 8" or 10.75" Lengths.  (sold separately)

Includes:

  • 1-shot Jig Plate
  • 1-shot Target
  • 1-shot router Bit
  • 1-shot dowel
  • 1-shot spacer
  • 1-shot dummy fin
  • EVA Shims (x4)
