Back From The Machine Shop

After the motor coupling failure, I designed an adaptor plate and had a local machine shop make it out of steel. Now I can weld the steel hub to the adaptor plate and bolt the whole assembly to the coupling using grade 8 bolts.

Great solution. If my coupler doesn't work out, for whatever reason, I might make a coupler like this one.

Wow, it's amazing what problem that little piece can cause. Your solution to this problems look great, that should work well.
