Step 6: Tap the holes

Picture of Tap the holes
Grab an 8-32 tap, throw your coupling in a vice, and tap the holes. Afterwards, check to make sure that you can put an 8-32 screw far enough into the coupling to press against a shaft in the coupling.

While you're at it, take a look at your motor shafts. If there aren't flats, use a dremel or a bench grinder and add a flat on each shaft. This will help the setscrew hold the shaft in place.


"Take me to the Riot" off The Stars' new CD is a great song. In fact, the entire album is great--check it out.
