Length of the 1/4 inch to 1/4 inch delrin rigid coupling. Diameter of this clamp coupling. Disassembled clamping coupling showing the four screws.
Introduction:

Rigid couplings will keep backlash to a minimum, since the coupling is one single piece. Generally, the motor shaft with a 1/4" diameter will be inserted in one end, and a shaft, or lead screw also measuring 1/4" in diameter will be inserted into the other end. The screws that clamp the shafts will be tightened, but not too much. These types of clamping couplings will not damage the shafts.

Description:

This coupling is called a clamping coupling or clamp coupling. The length of this rigid coupling is 1.129 inches (28.7 mm). The diameter is 0.743 inches (18.87 mm). The tool needed to tighten the coupling is a hex key or allen wrench (not included) with a size of 3/32 inches. There are four screws in total, two for each shaft that is inserted into this coupling.

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. The resistors are in, right? Ah, I know, you want to see the complete assembly before you dig in. Ok, on to this part of the assembly. Please don't ask me what Mosfets are, but the word sound cool! I can tell you that they stand for Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor. I have personally read about fifty descriptions of this electronic animal and I still can't figure it out. It doesn't say much for a Berkeley grad! Well, I'm open to some plain English interpretations without the word "drain" in them. Are you still with me?
