Here is where I’d like to discuss spindles or routers for different machine configurations, uses and price points. I am developing the Maslow further for the open source market and would like to have contribution of the community and build solutions that people with existing systems can upgrade to if they’d like.
one significant factor to consider is the slow movement of a maslow style
machine and the resulting ‘feeds and speeds’ problems that this causes.

it is very useful to have the ability to use a long bit (both for deep cuts and
to get past the sled itself), which means a large bit diameter is useful to have
you need to be able to have a very small bit for find details
