I've been needing to make a test bench for gearboxes, driveshafts and other driveline components. I have a big timken bearing with a 5 row pulley that i want to use, but this limits me to a shaft diameter od 30 mm (1 3/16) i need to make a flange so i can change attachments like chucks, flange plates, live centres. By my estimations i'll be putting max of 85 Nm of torque and max of 3000 Rpm. At first i thought morse taper but it will be hard to replicate for all the attachments, than i thought a straight shaft with a tapered pin, or a big thread with a flat shoulder to look again. Tell me your thoughts, experiences, any advice is much appreciated.
