I’m considering getting the Maslow but I already have the Dewalt DWP611 router. Does this router work with the Maslow? Any special modifications? Thank you!
@javagenki Welcome to our group. The Dewalt has no mechanics to lift it in the Z axis. You could make this but it’s not included on the router like the Ridged. You can look at the project:
I am usually the last to “fix it if it ain’t broke” with this type of project, however I will soon be abandoning the problematic stock z axis and there are so many better options.
Here’s something I’m about to try Yet Another Z Axis Mod - #36 by OtandAT
If you may have to get another router anyway:
Metal Maslow kit $600 ships Nov. Respond below if interested
Maybe DeWalt fits it … Check into it.
Glad to have you here
yes any palm router or 3.5" diameter bench top router can fit the “metal Maslow” with the correctly made clamp
That is the key for all the non-depth adjustable base set-ups. I don’t know the diameter of the DWP611, but I would say that you can plan to use it and go with a home built z-axis. I used a c-beam and it was reasonably straightforward without a lot of fabrication. A lot of people are using the Meticulous Z-axis that @bee suggested, which has the benefit of being able to be cut by the Maslow, and you could certainly mount the DWP611 on a temporary sled and manually adjust the z until you got your final sled built.
