Buying the z axis kit

I bought the maslow cnc kit with no Z axis and now that it’s built i realize the z axis is very useful. I went today to buy and found its not for sale anymore. Can someone help, i know the parts can be bought but i don’t know where to start.

If you can take the inner part out you could look at

A faster z-motor and the matching cupler can be sourced.

The inner part can be taken out but the router is similar to the ridged in that a motor can be placed on the height adjuster. You said a z-motor and cupler can be sourced? where can i buy the parts and can i have pictures of how its put together?

Thanks again for your help

the problem with those big routers is they are pretty heavy and therefore you need a pretty strong motor to move them.
you can buy https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MEGLCPL/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
but not sure if it is strong enough to move your router. using uhmw slick tape and graphite dry lube helps.
