My work asked me to make another Maslow with some of our leftover 8020 aluminum. The frame itself was 2.5 meters from motor to motor and is 8ft tall (didn’t cut down the 8020 extrusions). We laser cut counterweights instead of using bungees for the chain’s slack, I knew this wouldn’t be possible without being able to feed the chain into the gear at an appropriate angle, more about this in the picture.
green circle: aluminum ski that feeds the chain in at the necessary angle
red circle: counterweight (only feasible because of the aluminum feeding piece)
Any questions or higher quality photo requests please let me know!
Thanks to my work for supplying the materials for this build TechGarage
