M1-to-M4 Migration (Parts Re-use)

I am an original Maslow user switching to M4 (Not received yet).

Currently, my high-level checklist includes:

  • I will need to adapt my frame to add bottom corner belt attachment points.
  • I assume the belts in the M4 kit are NOT long long enough for my 12’x6’ bed?
  • Currently running a Rigid R22002 - looks like i need to order a Dewalt 611 - Is this right?
  • … other thoughts?

Has anyone else already listed what they found re-usable?

I honestly can’t give you a definite answer, but what I understand is that the max the M4 can reach is about 11x11. I think I read that the belts are about 14 ft long and you can deduct 1/2 of the diameter of the sled.

So, it seems like you can reuse the frame you have with a few modifications. I think the vacuum system you are using would still work. Depending on what computer you were using before, that will probably still work for the new M4 as well.

12x6 is the distance between the anchor points? That should work great :grinning: @Dieseltim is exactly correct.

Unfortunately the R22002 is too big for the Maslow4. When we relied on gravity the extra weight was a bonus, but now that we don’t need gravity anymore the lighter smaller router is better.
