Thread: looking for a coupling
Hi guys i`m looking for a coupling but cant seem to find the size im looking for
i`m after a ridgid style one piece clamp coupler to connect a 14mm shaft to 16mm shaft
i would make one but my lathe is out of action till i can find parts
if some one could point me in the right direction i would be greatful
or if you can make one send me a quote
Wow, just looked them up, not cheap are they? I'm sure you've looked into it but are you sure you can't get away with an oldham, they are a lot cheaper and seems a lot of money to then have to make a bush. With oldhams you can bore them out but at the price, I've bough tteo before and swappd ends. Thats a Ruland bush? They will make any two bore sizes, I suspect they will want some significant money though!

going to make them my self i bumped in to a old friend of mine who has a lathe (i forgot he had that lol)
Was going to offer to make one as I've done lots in the past. Let me know if you still need it.
Sorry if I'm stating the obvious, but it's best if you bore the 14mm and 16mm hole both frome the same side of the coupling, i.e. do it all without taking the material out of the chuck. That ensures the two holes are perfectly concentric.
just wondered is the picture your work ????
if so pm me a offer depending on the price i might take you up on it
about 80mm long want good contact area both ends
will 30mm bar have anough meat left on the 16mm end for the screws ??

Jonathan you might want to consider allowing the slit to cut the opposite side as well. it allows it to grip much better. Scott if you want one of theses to cover the whole screw (thread as well) then that is not good. You need to take some off to about 12mm which should be about the bottom of the thread, 16mm seems a bit big?If the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:
i`m sure you are thinking for a leadscrew??? first post makes it sound like it lol
all i need to do is connect a 14mm motor shaft to a 16mm shaft with a sprocket on it
Edit: Didn't see previous post in time, so it is something else...
