I’m about to take the plunge and order a Maslow kit.
One of the items that stopping me is where to put it in my basement.
I have a spot in one corner that would be perfect, except its under some ductwork that limits the height to only 73".
So, what are the minimums? Presumably, there is a stack-up of vertical dimensions that allows for all corners to be cut.
What is the distance from the center of the spindle to the bottom of the standard sled/brick-weight combo?
Is there any way to make the bricks not stick out the bottom so far?
Has anyone had luck with using something other than bricks? lead weights?
Any alternatives to the shape of the weights? For example, if I cast a piece of concrete in the shape of a crescent to fill the entire bottom?
I have heard that 12" - 18" is the ideal distance between the top edge of the plywood and the center of the spindles on the motors.
how large are the motors? how much of the motor sticks out the top above the center of the spindles?
Would going to a 12’ instead of 10’ top beam help or hurt performance?
Thanks a ton in advance!!
