Let’s get it on!

I know what you’re thinking…
How do I get the coupler on the shaft?
Good question!
The tolerance between the diameter of the motor shaft and the bore of the coupler is very tight. Some of our fellow brewers have had trouble getting the coupler on their motor shaft. If you run into this dilema, you may want to try one (or more) of these tricks which have been used:
1. Use some light oil on both the shaft and the coupler.
2. Use some very fine sandpaper or emery cloth to lightly sand down the bore of the coupler.
3. Heat the coupler and cool the shaft. Then, try to slide the coupler onto the shaft while the coupler is still warm.
4. With a dead blow hammer or rubber mallet, lightly tap the coupler onto the shaft.
Hope this helps!
Happy Brewing!
