The location of the adjustment bolt on the stock Taig Milling machine motor mount is a bit inconvenient to access. I built the following mount to swap the position of the slot and pivot, and move both slightly away from the body of the motor. Use your own motor mount as a guide when making one as I found several different versions have been used over the years. The screw holes are all #11, the slot is about .202" wide and the center bore is 1.25" for clearance. If I was smarter I would have radiused the other corners. It was a relatively quick CNC milling and drilling operation. Please improve on this and send me pictures of your solutions...
|The underside of the mount. All milling is done from this side. The material is 1/4" thick 6061 aluminum.|
|The top of the mount.|
|Now I have clearance for a long allen wrench|
|The corner does not foul the pulley as it seems, because it is always above the end of the pulley. But I should have radiused it. Dang.|
|A quick sketch, but please check against your motor mount as it may be different.|
