hello, I’m getting ready to build a boat or two (or 4) and it seems like maslow would be a great way to cut the frames. And the investment is pretty reasonable to get a 4x8 cutting surface.
My question is this: my garage is not tall and I want to cut full 4x8 sheets. So, I think this means:
- 1 foot below the sheet
- 4 for the sheet
- 3+ feet above the sheet and 12’ span to get the optimum full range.
So that means I need 8’ ceilings - which I don’t have, especially with a 12’ span.
What is the largest angle I can put the sled at before friction becomes a problem?
at 30 degrees it comes down to 7’
at 45 degrees it comes down to just over 6’
And as an alternative… If I say I’m just going to use half sheets can I bring it down to 24" over the sheet and maybe an 8 foot span?
Thanks in advance,
and maybe a couple of kayaks…
