Pin shelf holes, with Z axis module

Hello everyone, just found this project, and got hooked immediately, but it’s unfortunately out of stock. Meanwhile, i was wondering, do you think this tool could be a viable option for drilling pin shelf holes when equipped the Z axis module? Or would it be very slow? Any ideas on this from people who already own the product?

Hello Zsolt_Popa, and welcome!
While the Maslow could do the job of drilling the holes, as you imagined it would be slower than making a jig to locate the hole locations and using a drill to do it by hand.
On the other hand, using the machine would give the satisfaction of making the machine do it - making the CAD drawings, outputting the gcode file, setting up the material in the machine and running the program.
I find myself doing woodworking projects without the Maslow when time presses, and use the machine when I’ve got time to enjoy the process.

Use Maslow to make the jig! That’s on a VERY long list of “Made With Maslow” shop tools/jigs/fixtures for the Fall this year. :smiley:


The stock maslow would be slow (because the Z axis is slow), you could work to
speed up the maslow.

one huge advantage the maslow has over manual work with a jig is that while it
takes a long time, you can be doing other things in the area, and you don’t have
to worry about the jig being positioned wrong.

something like pin shelf holes is something I think the maslow is perfect for.
