looking for motor mounts Answered

Picture of

I'm wanting to attach a few motors to a wood frame; however I'm not sure how to go about doing this.  The motors I'm using are in the picture; you'll notice their really isn't any holes to attach any mounting brackets of any kind.  I was thinking of using a 3/4'' pipe clamps, but was wondering if anyone here has any advice or experience with this.

Pipe clamps work perfect for this application, Or a piece of very thin steel bent to shape & screwed down is what i usually use.

The pictured clamp looks like a Great fit (although I don't know it's size). I personally would use some of my excess "tin" (steel actually but since I would be using tin snips....:-) ), and make myself what I needed.

I was thinking about making my own as well. In fact I made a nice model of a perfect mount that I could print up with a 3D printer if I had one. I checked out PONOKO and holy cow; I like custom parts but not for that price.

Yeah, that tends to get a bit expensive, even when they have sales.
