I used one of these on my Gimson Robotics motor and below in amongst this quite long post is how I fitted it.

[EDIT…] I see the phidgets motor has a key way fitting so slightly different to mine but the same method would basically work.

so your hub is 3d printed ?

Yes. Turned the wheel on my sprayer covering 15000 acres without fail last year.


Soooooo, you’re saying the little rubber wheel paid for itself :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:


Has anybody found a ready to install option to install directly on to 12 mm shaft on the phidgets motor? :thinking:

I’ve used these.

Not ready made - maybe easy made. Got a brass bushing, cut a slot lengthwise, pushed on, cross drilled with roll pin, pushed on rubber wheel
