The State of the Active Maslow Community, June-July 2019

I am a little curious about our community, so being the community poll-maker, I thought I’d make a series of polls to understand who we are. All polls are optional, so if you don’t want to answer a particular question, or any questions, don’t. To get a snapshot of the community at this time, but give people plenty of time to participate, I’m am setting the polls to end July 15. So let’s get started!

P.S. If someone wants to add their own poll(s) to the thread, have at it! There are good tutorials online, or PM me if you need help.

Q1. About your Maslow CNC - EDIT: I couldn’t add “I had my Maslow CNC working but it’s down for repairs/improvement” to this poll, so see post 3 for this option.

  • I have a working Maslow CNC
  • I have built a Maslow CNC, but don’t have it working yet
  • I am building a Maslow CNC
  • I have bought a Maslow CNC kit, but haven’t started building
  • I am waiting to order or waiting for delivery of a Maslow CNC kit

If it’s not on the list in the link, use OTHER = 100.

This is an awesome poll. May I suggest (half jokingly) adding and option to the first question: “I have built a Maslow but it isn’t working right now (Since I started tinkering with it)!”

Good call! The ironic thing is that I am in this situation myself! Discourse doesn’t let you modify your poll after 5 minutes, so here’s the best I can do. If your check one of the options below, I suggest you don’t answer Q1 above. If you already have, send me a PM telling me which option you chose and I will tally the deductions.

Q1a. About your Maslow CNC

  • I have built a Maslow CNC, but it’s down for repairs
  • I have built a Maslow CNC, but it’s down for improvements
  • I have built a Maslow CNC, but it’s down for repairs and improvements

It looks like I messed up the language polls by not understanding how that particular poll type works. Feel free to answer that question, although the results may be difficult to interpret.

all of the question should allow multiple answers.

Love this, it’s really interesting to see these metrics.

I didn’t see the “I have built a Maslow CNC, but it’s down for repairs and improvements” until I had finished with the polls in the first post. Definitely more descriptive of my current situation! :wink:

Just kidding, half serious:
I’m missing:
Going the path of quadrilateral, finally reaching triangular with help of this amazing folks, adjusting the frame twice, building the 3rd sled and got lost between ‘regular calibration’, ‘manual calibration’, web-control, holy calibration. Well, just my path :slight_smile:

edit: converted to spindle

The chain going over or under the sprockets question is a bit odd, why not just say top or side mounted? (I’m not sure which one “over or under sprocket” to select for top mounted spare chain)

Probably should say both so people get the idea no matter which way they think about it.

Under is for spare chain above the work area, over has the slack chain on the sides

(*edited to remove the word “over” used in a confusing context)

A question about z-axis and modifications might be of use?
