The male end is really the only thing that needs to be 14mm. The female side fitting over the motor arbor will need the holes and the set screw holes, which on an 8mm arbor with a 14mm female going over it would give about 3mm of meat for the set screw threads if I'm seeing it in my head correctly. Would that be enough or would you recommend going thicker? I'm fine either way, as long as the ID on the female end is 8mm and the OD on the male end is 14mm, both sides being 22-25mm long respectively..I can make it per the above instructions if that is what you want. If my math is correct the wall thickness won't even be but .118". That doesn't give you much meat to thread. If it doesn't hurt to increase the OD, I would for more threads. It's up to you.
I sent him the dimensions in inches.Just a little tip.
When making a sketch or print to have someone make some part for you.
Do your dimensions in good old american inches.
Chances are the majority of Tool & Die Makers and Machinist can make anything with either metric or english measurements.
But most of us will convert to thousands of the inch, well because most if not all our of our measuring tools are for inch reading (thousands).
And all this equipment we use with out a digital read out will be set in thousands of the inch too.
This will save us a little time, and might save you some money if paying!
Quick fact for those that do not know.
25.4 millimeters in a inch
Each millimeter is .03937 inch.
