Connect this to that with a set-screw coupler. These couplers are made of machined aluminum and have a spiral cut that makes them slightly flexible so they can be fit to two shafts even if they are not perfectly co-linear and will help reduce binding effects. The way they're cut, they're a little springy in the X Y & Z linear axis but not in the rotational axis. That means that you won't get increased backlash - so they're suitable for precision CNC work.

This coupler will connect a 5mm diameter shaft to an 8mm diameter shaft. A perfect add on for Adafruit's stepper motors. Comes with two sets of double set-screws (two per side) for secure attachment. You'll need a 2mm allen wrench to tighten/loosen the set-screws.

    After playing around with cheap import couplers, purchased these from core, and it is chalk and cheese. I will never scout the interned to save a few bucks, straight to core-electronics, guaranteed to have the best quality products.
    No affiliation, just a very satisfied customer. Keep up the great work core-electronics team!! (Posted on 11/10/2018)
