I’m new hear and have done a few hours of reading. Will the kit that ships in June include the new black metal ring and roller hardware?
To make sure I understand parts I need from Maslow are.
- Kit $350
- z-kit $60
- Carbide bits
I realize the rest can be modified and changed. It seems the ring kit is improved accuracy over this?
Just found this…
I would suggest adding this detail directly on the store page. Most e-commerce sites have a great deal of detail or bullet list.
Or maybe just link to the whatsinthebox page.
We really need to do a big clean up on the website, and I will soon.
It seems like you answered your own question, but yes! All of the June kits will include the ring
The ring kit is provided for improved accuracy over the original “quadrilateral” kinematics setup (two L-shaped brackets bolted to the sled). The linkage kit you linked to was one of the first “triangular” kinematics (along with @dlang’s pantograph) that greatly improved accuracy and simplified Maslow’s world. @bar was working with the ring concept while the linkage kits were in process and he ultimated decided upon making it the new stock linkage. Which is better, @pillageThenBurn’s, @dlang’s or @bar’s has not been determined, but any of the three will be far superior to the original quadrilateral kinematic setup.
awesome! I’m excited to start building.
