Laser cut motor bars and sled upgrades from www.metalmaslow.com


FIRST ITEM: $30 + $15 shipping: “calibration free” Laser cut motor top mount bar 120" and 140" motor spacing holes will not ship till 9/20/19 ONLY ships in continental USA. These will not ship till END OF SEPT. 2019. Because the holes are the same distance on every tube we can give you calibration data that lets you skip making a custom calibration (if using a metal maslow kit, if using other brand in theory users will be able to share calibration data if their sleds and router are similar). This will hopefully greatly simplify the setup. two tubes about 6 ft long with an alumimum c channel connector. Two sets of holes will give mounting options for either 10 or about 12’ motor distance.

CAN BE USED WITH ANY KIT: MakerMade East Bay or Metal Maslow brands.

2nd item: $120 + $20 (usa) shipping = $140 total
The sled is approximately 12" in diameter with a UHMW (very slippery low friction plastic trim) and weighs about 12 lbs. By the time you add all the component weights together the final sled will be about 25 lbs. Z axis is 200mm long.
See our assembly page for easy step by step instructions. Takes about 15 minutes to assemble. Please note the base is spray painted black. One will have to use moderate pluge rates for best results. We recommend no more than 1/8" at a time. Router not included. 3.5" routers can be used as well with a sheet of 1/16" plastic shim

Is that hole where a 45-degree coupler goes to hook up to a vac? Correct me if I’m wrong… the bottom of the sled is elevated above the work surface by the UHMW trim to create a gap for the vacuum?

I like this approach. In the spirit of making things the same, can you please provide the Maslow and Advanced dimensions/settings related to the sled and linkage (below). Obviously these can be measured but since it was designed and then laser cut, might as well provided them so everyone is working off the same numbers:

"Maslow Settings":
Distance Between Sled Mounting Points
Sled Weight (ridgid or makita)
Vertical Distance Sled Mounts to Cutter
Center of Gravity (ridgid or makita)
Z-Axis Pitch
Rotational Radius

"Advanced Settings":
Rotation Radius for Triangluar Kinematics

not relevent to this type of sled

Sled Weight (ridgid or makita)

specify which router

Vertical Distance Sled Mounts to Cutter
Center of Gravity (ridgid or makita)

neither of these are relevent to this type of sled

Z-Axis Pitch
Rotational Radius

"Advanced Settings":
Rotation Radius for Triangluar Kinematics

we should only have one rotational radius, not two

yes the UMHW elevated about 3/16, however you have to decrease vacuum so it doesnt’ get vacuummed stuck. we also have a piece of channel that can go under z axis to remove saw dust. will update photo latter.

yes Have been meaning to do this, need to double check numbers will follow up latter
