I think I have my maslow almost ready for the first cut. I’ve been doing a little each evening after work. for the last week. I had to have the z axis connector milled to a slot on the 3/8 side because my ryobi router z axis attachment point is different. (I’d really like to get my hitachi M12VC plunge adapter fitted out for this because it has speed control, but that is an upgrade option and will be a challenge for the vacuum). I was going to make the system narrower so my cars still fit in the garage, but it turns out I have barely enough room to make the full size frame and I just got the motors and chains on in the standard configuration with the chain-bungee’d sprocket arrangement.
Where should the chains be to start? They seem awfully long. The bungee is also super long, so it is sagging all over the place. Is there a location the chain should reach to when the system is first set up and how long should the bungee be to start with so it is tight enough, but not too tight or tool loose?
