These clamping hubs are a great and cost-effective choice when attaching hub mount gears or wheels to shafts or tubes and can be a better option than set screw hubs if you don't want to risk damaging whatever you need clamped. These clamping hubs have a 1/4" bore, four 6-32 tapped holes, one 6-32 machine screw for tightening, and utilizes the 0.77" hub pattern.
Actobotics is a robotics building system based around extruded aluminum channels, gears, precision shafts, and ball bearings. Thanks to the two standardized hole patterns, nearly all Actobotics components can be intuitively connected together. The wide range of components makes building complex electromechanical prototypes or finished projects a reality.
This skill concerns mechanical and robotics knowledge. You may need to know how mechanical parts interact, how motors work, or how to use motor drivers and controllers.
Skill Level: Noob - You will be required to put together a robotics kit. Necessary parts are included and steps will be easy to follow. You also might encounter basic robotics components like bearings, mounts, or other hardware and need a general idea of how it goes together.

Was stuck for a while locating a clamping hub with sufficient tightening force for use with a 1/4" shaft. This one is the best I could find. My application is unique and there is a lot of torque.
But as happy as I am with it, my next usage may generate too much torque even for this hub. The 1/4" shaft is fixed. May not be able to manage with using two hubs. Will have to think this over further.
Thanks - it is a fine hub.
