A chain guide to increase chain engagement with the sprocket on the original frame
The guide is made from two layers of 12mm (~1/2") plywood. I designed the pattern to be reversible, that way I could make one program for both the right and the left motors. I ran two screws through the back of the bigger part to secure the smaller part. You could also glue and staple it if that works for you. The most important part of the assembly is the smaller piece is roughly centered on the larger piece.
The NC file is programmed to use the 1/4" 1 flute bit available from the Maslow store. The feeds and speeds can be changed either in the NC program using find/replace for other 1/4" bits, or by opening the nest file and changing the tool used for the operations for other sized bits.
