I am trying to measure the rotational radius of my Metal Maslow sled. Metal Maslow told me this is “about 7 inches”, but I assume I need a bit more precision. I put a V tip bit into my Dewalt 611 router, and a long nail in the cotter pin hole on one of the arms to trace its path around the router center. I measured between 7” and 6-3/8” radius.
Questions for Metal Maslow sled users:
Should this number be constant through the arc?
What is your rotational radius?
Which router are you using?
Is your router centered on the large hole at the center of the sled? Mine is offset. I am wondering if the arms are centered on the thru hole and not the router.
