Will a z-axis motor from any of the Maslow kit suppliers work with this? (asking for myself, and future viewers of this thread.) :slight_smile:

As I found that the lowest speed on the Rigid/any typical router spins way too fast for ABS plastic, what would you say the level of difficulty to use/adapt a spindle on this rig would be?

Thank you. I think your kit has appeared at a perfect time for me. :slight_smile: :relaxed: :sweat_smile:

yes z axis will work with any z motor.

most spindles are smaller than the ridged router so you will need to put in a block of wood or washers to center the spindle. the ridged is 92mm diameter and most spindles are 52mm diameter so 40mm difference divided by 2 = 20mm spacer needed.

since our z axis uses 1/8" metal it is much more compact than wooden versions. there for the extra spacer needed for a spindle will work fine.
