Yesterday I finished my setup of my Maslow CNC. Calibration went well. Only had to do it 3-4 times. Reading the instructions helps a lot. The calibration is very close, Well, close enough to cut the sled. It was up to 60 degrees outside when I started and figured I didn’t need to get fuel for my heater yet. The temperature had been in the 20s so, I felt warm.
I calibrated Z and decided to run Maslow through it paces without the tool to see how it went. Seemed good! I was ready to add power to the bit and cut the sled. The Ridgid router is quiet. Nice!
I stated cutting the sled and the temperature started dropping. I got cold and quit for the night.
Problems I fund so far. The 2x4s that hold the plywood from dropping to the floor are too long and the temporary sled runs in to them. I cut them back and added a spacer for now.
The movement of the router is a lot slower that I would think. This might be my settings. I will be able to work on that after I get my sled cut and re-calibrate the whole thing.
My first impression is good. As most DYI projects you need to work with it to have it do what you want.
Order of the Maslow CNC to the first cut is not so bad. but read the documentations and watch many YouTube videos.
Next step is to learn some CAD software. Making the sled was all done for me. I want to go from my mind to the router bit.
Thanks for listing to me,
