Really simple question... how do I shaft mount?

  1. Aug 13, 2015 #1
    I'm trying to make a 3D model of a linear actuator. I'm using this roller pinion: http://www.nexengroup.com/nxn/products/details/id/966828

    It has a keyed bore and says I need a shaft mount but I have no idea how I'm supposed to mount it to a DC motor...

    Could someone please explain the parts I will need and how to mount it? I know this is a really stupid question but I've been stuck on this for a while now and it's doing my head in

    Basically - yes . But there must also be a means of stopping wheel from sliding off axially when in use . Typically a side screw in wheel or a nut on end of shaft .
