Jennings makes a silver plated clamp-on flange for mounting.  Jennings' 
recommended mounting position is vertical -- which puts less lateral 
stress on the soft copper concentric plates.  To do this, one needs a 
right angle drive to bring the drive shaft out the front.   Multronics 
makes a right-angle drive that is Ideal for this application.  The 
Multronics right-angle drive is designed to replace the collet on the 
Jennings screw-drive shaft.  Be sure to set the cap. for maximum C (full 
CCW) before replacing the collet with the right-angle drive.
