Project Steps

Loosely bolt the assembled motor to the mount, as shown, using washers on both sides, and a lock washer touching the nut.

Put the bearings onto the shaft, insuring the eccentric side is facing inwards.

Remember to put the eccentrics in between the two bearings.

The eccentrics are little collars with lopsided circles inside of them. This makes it so it can lock into the bearings.

Insure both collars are facing the right direction (So it will lock onto the lip) and so are the bearings.

Put the coupler onto the shaft.

Make sure you can see thru the holes, (it could be off 180 degrees and a little crooked) then put on the bolt, lock washer, and lock nut. Tighten

Couple it to the motor, tightening down the set screw.

Tighten the motor mount bolts.

Bolt the bearing closest to the motor to the mount with a washers, a lock washer, and a lock nut. Tighten these down.

Insure the hammer rotates freely still.

It may require some force, but shouldnt need much.

If the hammer won’t rotate, loosen the motor mount bolts, retighten them, and recheck it.

Position the other bearing and tighten it down, still insuring it will rotate without much force.

Lock the eccentrics by pushing them towards the lip on the bearing and twisting it.

Tighten the set screw on the eccentrics.
