As I am waiting for my kit, I am putting together the frame and figured I might as well do the sled too. Is there a latest CAD/STL/SVG drawing of the sled? I have been looking on the forums and I see a few of them. Don’t know which one to use.
Which file should I be using?
Thank you for your time.
I can’t help other then say hello and pushing this question up on the latest list
Knowing the folks here, plenty will jump in. Trust me, if it does not exist, it will within the blink of an eye.
Not sure if this is where I should bring this up at. I have not received my Maslow yet waiting for the ship to cross the pond to the states (sorry Navy term). But I have been reading a lot of posts and was wondering if anyone ever tried a piece and Teflon under the sled. I tow a 40 foot 5th wheel and I buy these piece of round Teflon that fit over the pin and help make the hitch slid better on the plate. With the Teflon we do not have to use grease. I would try it myself but again I do not have my own Maslow yet…
I just went from 17" to 19" and regret it. I’ll go down again.
If you are using the ring kit, you can surly go lower then 18.
You want to provide enough surface for the sled to ride over previous cuts.
12" or 14" sounds to low for me.
The ring plus z-axis-mount plus bricks or other weight should fit.
At 6° the sled would turn when the bit when in or out, like wiggle. With the bracket mount, that caused a diversion off the path. Not enough friction and/or pressure on the bit was my guess, I went to 10° and all was good. Depending on the mount system, it’s the sweet spot between gravity and friction that I’m looking for.
