Single 5/8" Coupling Hub
$4.00
Introduction:

If you have a 5/8" lead screw, this is the hub for you.

Description:

Note: To create a complete coupling set, you will need two hubs (one for the motor shaft and one for the lead screw end) and you will need one spider. These items are only offered to allow for any configurations that is not offered for rigid couplings.

DIY Coupling: A coupler for the motor and lead screw (from Marc K.)
This creative coupling solution comes from another generous user of the site. He has devised a way to couple the motor to the leadscrew with standard aluminum tubing. Marc has graciously allowed me to show you this creative idea.
Step 16: X-Axis Lead Screw
This tutorial is dated, if you are considering a CNC for your personal use, we would highly recommend purchasing a kit that is very stable from our wide range of machines available. Instead of using allthread for the lead screw and a standard nut, consider using a 5 start lead screw and anti-backlash nut. It will keep you from pulling out your hair by running much smoother and faster. The y-screw has been installed. The x-screw is now needed. Assembly and concept for the x-screw is the same as the y-screw. The only difference is that you will need to pick up the entire machine and provide access to the bottom.

I came across a rather interesting idea while checking out Disney's Research Hub: Printed Optics. They seem to be quite interested in fabrication and 3D printing as a good majority of their videos pertain to this type of subject matter. More interestingly, they have devised a way to print objects that embed optical characteristics so that light traverses where they intend to create some very interesting effects.
