Just received my bundle of lowrider2 parts, the printed parts, and started building the sub assemblies while I wait for the flat parts to arrive from kinetic concepts. Super pleased with the quality so far!
I have a woodworking shop, and a lovely industrial shelving unit that I’ve decided would be the ideal location for my lowrider2 ( the unit being 96"long x 36" deep x 96"high), so now I have to problem solve how I will make it work. I’ll need to unload the unit and provide enough room between it and the wall for the side assemblies to have clearance. While I’m at it, I’m going to need to figure the height clearance, does anyone have this info if I want my z to travel 3.5" total and I do have the 611 DeWalt. I might build it out fully and measure the height before moving the shelves to their final height, as I would hate to have to reconfigure again.
Still working out where to source the stainless tubes locally, as the ones I’ve found are too thin (curtain rods from a second hand building materials store) seems to be 1/32nd thick and while I’ve been tempted to try it, I know it’s probably not worth wasting the time on. But I do wonder that if said rod has a mating rod inside, as this one does, would that help mitigate the sag, or is it more the deformation of the thin walls that will rule it out?
Anyway, I’ll update as the build progresses this week.
