I would like to ask if there is a way to couple a servo motor to a shaft.

Thanks.

1. A standard servo will only turn about 220 deg.

2. They can be modified fro 360 deg rotation.

3. If the shaft is much bigger or smaller then you will need to make a converter with the appropriate sized holes in it for the servo and the shaft.

4. If they are more or less the same join them with a short length of tight fitting plastic pipe. PVC tubing.

What do you mean by a "servo motor" ? Do you mean a model aircraft type servo, or do you mean a real servo motor ?
