I'm making a wind-powered sculpture (powered by a VAWT -
The problem is I have no idea how to mount the bearing. I'm imagining a shaft will attach to my turntable by means of a hub so that the motion of the turntable will transfer torque to the shaft. The shaft will then go through the tapered roller bearing which will be somehow mounted on a supporting stricture. I'm picturing a flange mount or pillow block to hold the bearing but I haven seen any kind of housing for the tapered roller bearing.Totally at a loss here about how things connect.
Another problem I have is that I have only seen tapered roller bearings with inner diameters of about 20mm and higher. While this sounds like a good size shaft to support my turntable, I haven't been able to find any hubs or flange mounts to connect a shaft to my turntable for the transfer of torque. I've managed to find some 4mm and 6mm universal mounting hubs with set screws which look great though:
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
