Please add me to your list.
Welcome to the forum!
Any updates on when the kit will be available for purchase?
I have been following developments for a few months now and want to place my order ASAP. I also need a 80mm spindle attachment made for me cause I don’t have acces to 3D printer not yet. I want a full kit with no motor with 80mm spindle holder for the Z axis.
By the end of this month for sure. Cleaning out and re-organizing space for the maslow business is taking longer than expected. I appreciate everyone’s patience.
Good to know. Can we get on a confirmed list. I can pay now as long as I know I will have a full kit with no motor. Already have spindle motor.
How about the 80mm spindle holder for the Z axis ?
We can send you a 3d printable 80mm holder. the key distance is from the center of the router bit to the z axis gantry plate should be 2".
Yes that works fine.
When can I pay for complete kit no motor with 80mm spindle holder ?
Not sure if this will help any of our European friends but I will be traveling to Greece via Munich (arrive approx. 9 am on April 3 then departing for Athens about 11 am (short layover). Might save you a couple bucks on VAT as long as I can get it through customs in Europe…I guess I could try to convince them that I am looking to buy a place and this stuff is so I could repair the house (sort of true).
how much will these kits weigh again?
Of course, that is all dependent on if the kits are ready and can reach me in time (Charlotte, NC).
It also depends on if TSA will let me have a couple of these kits in my carryon bag as well. Anyone have an opinion on that? I have carried some crazy crap in a carryon in my travels (tools, computer equipment, ZipLevel, monitors, etc.) so having a bit of extra “review” of my bags is nothing new to me. I think it would “pass” as long as there is nothing that looks like a weapon or a cartridge for a firearm (reason for my last “extensive” bag perusal).
Not sure how to “pass” of the transaction. Do they still have storage lockers in European airports?
It is definitely a risk with respect to customs. I guess it would be with me as well since you don’t know me personally but I am not one to screw over a couple people on a worldwide forum, if that is any consolation.
Just a thought. Might be able to take a couple kits, depending on box size and weight.
It is an unbelievable and nice try to help European Maslow fans, but I am affraid, that it will not work. Customs are very strict and hard, especially when somebody tries to bring to the EU any kits, parts, electronical components, etc. from overseas.
They will make a custom appointment about these things, and will charge you.
I think, it would be better to not to try it!
(I am actually in Europe, in Hungary, and I also have a complete kit + z (unopened).)
The weight of a complete kit with z is 5,3 kg.
Thanks, Az_Agg. Good to know.
You are welcome!
I really appreciate all your work in getting these kits prepared. It must be very exciting, fun, frustrating and stressful all at once.
Is there anything I can do to help?
When you have them ready, I’m interested too. Thanks much.
It is more work than I thought it would be, but we are almost there. made about 50 feet of shelving and countertop space for packing up stuff.
Sounds like you are on on final stages, thank you for the effort. My first build will be in your honor. I’ll build you… a HERRING!
I’d piped up on this thread back in September that we were interested in ordering (or pre-ordering) this kit. Checking back in I understand the kits aren’t quite for sale yet. I’m wondering how you are going to go about the sale? From what I can tell there is perhaps more demand than supply at this point. Hopefully you will be satisfying the orders from those who first expressed interest? And if so, how will you be contacting us? Just wondering if I should be checking this forum on a daily basis or…? Thanks a lot!
Good to hear your almost ready to ship. I am ready to send funds. Will you accept PayPal ? Also I need a 80mm spindle holder to be 3D printer.
Thanks again for all the hard work.
Lots to learn and discover while you’re waiting
