Laser cut sled, Z axis and Linkage upgrade kit
If you have bought one of the original maslow cnc kits or a kit from Maker made or East Bay that does not come with a sled or z axis this kit will give you a superior laser cut sled and linkage kit with Router Clamp for a ridgid R22002 router. You will use the original z axis motor that came with your kit, but because the threaded rod has a steeper 8mm pitch, your z axis will now be 4x faster. If you want it even faster you can change the belt and drive gears to give you an even faster ratio.
The sled is approximately 12" in diameter with a UHMW (very slippery low friction plastic trim) and weighs about 12 lbs. By the time you add all the component weights together the final sled will be about 25 lbs. Z axis is 200mm long.
See our assembly page for easy step by step instructions. Takes about 15 minutes to assemble. Please note the base is spray painted black to protect from rust.
