      I am trying to find a part that will attach to the shaft of a electric motor on one end and allow me to connect another shaft to the other. A coupler is what I call it. I attached a drawing of what I have in mind.

      I am not a draftsman so please keep that in mind. There is a set screw on each side to tighten down on the shafts.

      I cant find anything like this on the internet but I may be using the wrong terminology.

      If you know of any part like this I would greatly appreciate it a link to a supplier or whatever you can do.

      Note; the through holes are not supposed to be offset, thats just my crappy drawing! Sorry.

      Check out Misumi USA's website. They have couplings that you can configure to your specific dimensions.

      In my mind its better to design your parts to meet C.O.T.S. parts. Typically lead times are shorter and costs are lower.

      google "shaft couplings"

      There are many types. In order to determine what you need you will need to consider power and torque transmitted, rotationaly speed, potential misalignment, shaft fixing method, and operating environment.

      If you don't know how, the manufacturers will have technical reps able to advise you.

      There are lots of couplers at such sites as Stock Drive products, Sterling instruments, even Grainger. Just buy a .5" thru coupling and bore out one end to whatever size you need.
