I’ve ordered my Maslow, built the frame, and while I wait for shipping, I’m working out my chain tensioning system.
I haven’t finished all my pondering, but one thing that stymies me is that there are only two gears in the kit. Some of my solutions require 4 gears in total. Where does one get just the gear/sprockets for the tensioning part of the chain system? Maslow surplus is sold out of all the chain tensioning bits.
I did the layout a little differently to maintain the chain tension. I’ve had zero problems with the chain tension. The only problems I have had have been because I hadn’t put any chain lube on the chains themselves so a couple of pins were seizing up and throwing cuts off. Alternate approach to chain pulley system
