How can I turn rotational motion 90 degrees? Answered

I want to connect a horizontal, spinning shaft to a vertical shaft so that the first shaft will spin the second. Does anyone have any suggestions other than a gearbox or pulley/belt arrangement?

Hi, it's depends upon how much power you want to transmit, but a simple friction drive like this might work for you? L

A gearbox _is_ the way to do that. Two conical gears. Unless you are a master machinist, buy an appropriate sealed box. If you try to use a universal joint, the inertia involved is likely to burn out your motor.

you might be able to do it by connecting them with a flexible shaft (cable) or some plastic tubing like fuel line if the loads are not too heavy.
