Yeah, "everyone" was a bit too general, but I see a lot of motors mounted on pegs. Yours look a bit posh Jazz! Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of a spare milling machine, so have made mine from 6mm mild steel plates...using a hacksaw, a file, a cordless drill, and a lot of elbow grease and patience.
Because they have all been hit by a fooking pendulum when they were babies and crawling.
Leaves a lasting impression, in golden bollocks case you can still see the dent in the side of his noggin.

That alloy block contains two angular contact bearing and an Oldham coupling all in one neat package and a swap of the mounting plate means it will fit many different applications.John S -

Thank fk I'm not the only one that hates those peg leg things. I see so many of them that I thought I'd overlooked something vital.
That's a nice setup John S...care to share any more info or is it a trade secret?

P.S. Surprised you didn't say this time that it looks like a grandfather clock.John S -
