Single Coupling Spider
$3.00
Introduction:

This is the middle section of the coupling set. You will only need one of these to complete a set for one motor and one lead screw.

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.

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.
John S.C.'s CNC Machine and Suggestions
John S.C. did something that I have not yet seen. He applied a ball-screw to the DIY version of the CNC Machine found on the step by step and the book "Build Your Own CNC Machine". Yes, you heard me right! A ball-screw. Why do I sound excited? Read on.
Step 21: Driver Caps, Resistor Networks and Mosfets
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?
