I don’t have a ton of room in my garage, so I was toying with the idea of designing a wall mount for the machine. Has anyone tried this? I would guess that it would need to fold down from the wall to cut in the standard orientation because of the mass of the head..

I think you should just make it fit on a shelf, more than a folding version.March 14, 2019 at 11:35 pm #93223

You might get some ideas from the Maslow System…. maslowcnc dot com. I think their frame takes up around 3 feet from wall, but not sure…March 15, 2019 at 9:28 am #93299
The maslow is designed to be hung though. The mpcnc isn’t.March 15, 2019 at 9:42 am #93300
If you were to mount it in a box on the wall so that the front of the box folded down and legs popped out to support it it would work.
You run into a problem with the height of the Z axis but in reality you could make it quick disconnect and pull it out to store the machine.
I say try it.March 15, 2019 at 11:51 am #93304
Yeah I was thinking about maybe getting ideas from the frame setup they use. Replacing their frame with a table that would lean out of the way when not in use….but that may be getting into the weeds too much…lol.March 15, 2019 at 1:16 pm #93315
I’ve seen different versions of this idea used before with smaller CnCs

The biggest issue with the Maslow is that the original wormgears are not available anymore, so to make it work, you have to partly “re-engineer” the build
I had ideas to hook up the motors on the concrete pillars on my porch. Super rigid frame, but scrapped the idea because of the motors, and the missing Z-axis. Didn’t check for a long time, but I think there were plans to implement a Z-axis tooMarch 18, 2019 at 1:11 pm #93615
Long time reader, first time writer,
I own a Maslow and am currently building a mpcnc. The accuracy on the maslow has improved significantly over the past few months (software updates). The Z-axis is implemented about a year ago.
The reason I am building a MPCNC is that 2.5D CNC is not possible on the Maslow due to the sled and it is mainly suitable for larger projects. Other than that it is a fine machine.
Hope to post some pics soon of a working MPCNC.
