Sparkfun's Shaft Coupler - 1/4" to 5/16" is a versatile tool crafted from stainless steel. It is designed to couple two different sized shafts together, such as connecting motor shafts to drive shafts. With a length of 19.05mm and an outer diameter of 12.7mm, this shaft coupler is perfect for coupling 1/4" (6.35mm) to 5/16" (7.9375mm) shafts.
The Shaft Coupler is a part of the Actobotics building system. This system is renowned for its use of extruded aluminum channels, gears, precision shafts, and ball bearings. The standardized hole patterns in Actobotics components make for intuitive connections. The wide range of components in this system opens up a world of possibilities for building complex electromechanical prototypes or finished projects.
The Shaft Coupler's unique properties offer numerous benefits. Its stainless steel construction ensures durability and resistance to wear and tear. The ability to couple different sized shafts together makes it a versatile addition to any robotics project.
The dimensions of the Shaft Coupler are as follows:
- Length - 19.05mm
- Diameter - 12.7mm
- Bore A ID - 6.35mm
- Bore B ID - 7.9375mm
