I have decided to move my Maslow into a snug pocket in the back of my shop!
Despite the small footprint design of the maslow setup, It has been a challenge to be productive with other aspects in my shop with the current configuration.
I have decided to remove the beam as this is the only thing that must be tilted/manipulated in order to reach the destination. The beam (per instructions) has been glued as well as screwed which results in needing to take careful steps to not mess with accuracy later. I will begin with bracing the joints in the current position with wood and screws. Then removing the bracing and cutting off the original beam supports. I will reattach the beam with braces when moved to destination. This, in theory, should ensure that everything is exactly in the same position later. I desire to have it bolt together at these joints but may save that for a future project as I have no immediate plans to move a second time. I propose this to be incorporated in the default design (a hybrid with the bolt together design.) I may represent the minority that would benefit, however.
I almost didn’t post this but thought better of it.
Has anyone else tried temporarily holding their sled in a similar way while doing maintenance?:
It helps to have the sled cutout there but could be mocked up otherwise.
Here is a before pic of where it is going:
As you can see I am in the middle of updating my shop. I have been busy with this for awhile and feel that it is on the fast track now. I felt the bump-out of my old garage was the perfect place for the “kick back” of the frame stance!
I will try and update the Maslow move as I go…
