I have a motor with which the manufacture says that it has a 1:8 tapered shaft. I have to design a hub that goes on it. I know the diameter of the shaft before the taper, and I know the taper length. What I do not know is the angle of the taper or the diameter at the end of the taper. What does 1:8 taper mean?
