Need some help with attaching a rod to the shaft of a small motor. Motor is a 12v $10 on Amazon. How would i connect a dowel rod to the shaft of the motor? Perhaps there is a better way, if so please hit me up.
Does this motor have a speed reduction? Without something, internal or external, to reduce the speed most motors are going to spin a lot faster than I assume you want. After that it will take some thinking but some sort of coupler like Larry mentioned should suffice. The motor possibly has a flat side for a D couple and set screw but you'll have to see what you can find that could attach to the dowel.
Yes i do have speed switch. I believe the D-coupler will work. Attaching it to the shaft and then another 2" rod. I'm going to drill a small hole in the added rod & dowel rod. Connect the two using a cotter pin.
Thanks again to all.
