Shafts and Standoffs

A recent post asked about gluing standoffs to shafts. Standoffs can be attached to shafts using a Shaft Collar 276-1842 with a 1/2" long set screw( aka Coupler 8-23 x 0.500 276-1843). For a rigid version secure the collar to the shaft with the set screw before attaching the standoff. For a rotating version; secure the collar to the standoff before inserting the shaft. The shorter standoffs have a through hole. A long Allen wrench through the hole allows precise positioning of the set screw.
