So I have a bit of a problem connecting a new motor to my Z axis. The motor has an 8mm shaft, and needs to attach to a 3/8 leadscrew.
The closest coupling I can find would be 8mm to 10mm, which obviously means just under 0.5mm slack on the leadscrew end.
If anyone has any idea if this is workable or not that would be great as I haven’t used them before.
I worry that it would put a load more stress on bearings but I may be overthinking things.
Unfortunately it’s definitely 3/8 on the leadscrew. I do have a drill press, but it’s old and tired so I don’t really trust it’s precision to be honest. I may end up going this route if I can’t find an alternative though
