# How tall is the stalk Maslow?

I’m putting together my Maslow right now, and I was just wondering how tall the stalk Maslow is fully assembled? I only have 7-foot ceilings in my workspace so it is pretty tight.

My garage door is 7ft and the ceiling is 8 ft I feel your pain. I’m sure someone will have a more definitive answer but I calculate a 10 inch rise off the floor plus 48 inches for the sheet and ~ 19 inches on a 45 =? at least 10 -11 inches.

Thank you

Figure the motor shafts sit 16 inches above the plywood sheet, plus a couple inches for the gearbox around the motor, and the sheet needs to stand at least 8 inches above the floor, 10 would be better. Say 18 + 48 + 10 = 76 inches. The whole will be angled about 17 degrees from vertical, so that buys an inch or so. You should get it done in seven feet with some careful planning.

It is designed to fit through a standard door, which is 6’8", so it will fit in
7’

Wow - I thought I had a tight fit. However mine slides in a pocket where it has about 3 inches in front of it when it goes int the garage without the router. So at least you can operate in doors. Good work.

Also had a sloped floor bought some shims to level it out.

@Onelonedork glad to see it fits for you, but I am more curious about the smoke detector and xylophone in the picture. Some special secret project happening. If the Marlow overheats the smoke detector activates, sending a signal to the xylophone which inturn starts playing a hot little number like…“Ring of Fire” by Jimmy Cash…

That’s Epic dude…
