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.
