  • Best practice with the set screws is screw them all the way in to make sure the tapped hole is free of debris from the tapping operation and then back them back out before putting them on the shaft.
  • Mount the 16 tooth pulley on the shaft.
  • One set screw should be on the flat if your steppers have it.
  • Snug them up.
  • The lip should just be a millimeter or 2 from the mount face.
