I am building - for a friend that purchased an early kit from another person - a Maslow with Bar’s Bolt Together Frame. Actually, I built the original temporary frame, only to find the files I needed to cut to finish it were no longer available at the links I had. That was when I discovered that the original frame had been deprecated. I’ve built the bolt together frame, but when I went to mount the chain to the motors, I think I hit a snag…
The original kit has tiny tiny elastic that I don’t think is up to the task of tensioning the chain properly on the frame. Pictures make it appear that the newer kits use a much thicker elastic, perhaps a bungee cord? Any ideas on where I can source this locally?
Also, should we consider a ring kit or the triangulation linkage kit as a worth-it upgrade? I am building this at a makerspace with a 2’X3’ 80 watt CO2 laser. Are the files for the triangulation linkage kit available for download so I could cut them myself?
