Tech Thursday #030: Simple Motor Mounting

Looking for a simple yet sturdy way to mount a motor and an ATR shaft without buying a welded chassis? Try our motor mount tubes, which we machine it to mount our motor mount plates. The other side fits a flanged ball bearing. Slide a wheel shaft through the bearing onto the motor shaft and fix a couple of shaft collars and you’re in business. We make two versions, one for our IG32 and IG42 motors...
