Can I modify the shaft of a stepper after it’s received?

Filed under: Stepper Motors — mota @ 3:09 am

Making changes to a stepper‘s output shaft is not recommended.  A couple things could happen: there is only a hair’s worth of space between the rotor and and the stator – any shaving in the motor will arc; also because of the limited space the shaft has to be isolated so that it doesn’t vibrate into the stator during the machining; the shaft/rotor cannot be removed b/c it will de-magnetize the motor and all torque will be lost.
