Priority Mail to US (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands).

 

Do you offer a warranty?

Yes, EastBaySource warrants its products to be free from defects and malfunctions for a period of one (1) year for the original invoice date.

 

What else do I need to start cutting?

Our kit comes with everything you need, except for the router, computer, and wooden frame.

The z-axis included in the kit is designed for the Ridgid R22002 router. However, you can find extensive information in the community forums about users successfully using a variety of different routers.

 

Why are there higher priced kits from different providers?

Price gouging, adding a different z-axis and rebranding it along the way, does not make it worth 3 times more in our opinion.

Our kit is the WELL PROVEN SETUP that WORKS! - The vast majority of Maslow projects you see online were and still are being made with our setup. It has a precision of +/- 0.5mm (0.0196 inches) or better when properly calibrated -  It comes with the newest ring version, most powerful and accurate control board to date, laser-cut ring/carriages for added precision, automated z-axis control, and more...

Do your research before you make an expensive mistake. There is no “official” Maslow cnc provider, we all three vendors share the same rights to manufacture and sell Maslow cnc kits.

 

Is this a Maslow CNC kit?

Yes, it is. We are an authorized kit MANUFACTURER and parts supplier.

 

Is this the latest version of the kit?

Yes, our kit comes with the ring system, Z-axis control, upgraded motor gears, latest EBS 2022 shield.

 

Where can I get the software/firmware?

Software and firmware are open-source, free to download and free to use.

 

What is Ground Control 2022?

Ground Control is the latest and upgraded version of the original Maslow cnc software, it runs on your computer and connects to the machine.
It's a breeze to install, easy to use and will properly calibrate and control the machine.

New features:

  • Easier and accurate calibration
  • 40% overall faster cuts than previous versions (40% faster X,Y - 60% faster Z-axis)
  • Soft Z-axis limits
  • Spindle speed control via S-commands
  • Ability to send G-code commands manually and on the fly.
Main functionalities:
  • Properly and safely control the machine
  • Accurate calibration
  • Positioning the project on the cutting area (board)
  • Sending g-code to the control board
  • Staring, stopping or pausing the job
  • Jog the router using arrow keys
  • Test the system

 

NOTE: Ground Control is a software built from the ground up for the Maslow CNC machine. Its main purpose is to properly calibrate, send g-code and run the machinet. If wanted, different generic/modified G-code senders can be used, but from an end result standpoint there will be no advantages.
