  1. Let me start by saying that I have very little mechanical experience. I stumbled on Tinkerforge and also Makerbeam, and the pre-fab stuff has caught my interest. However, I have no tools, and no room for new tools to machine anything at the moment, but I still want to start. My goal: basically to mount a small "sensor platform" with a couple of bricklets on top of a stepper motor, where the motor shaft is pointed up. Any suggestions for how to do this with readily available components where I would not have to drill or otherwise machine something? I have found a 5mm to M3 mounting hub https://www.pololu.com/product/1998, but the M3 holes have odd spacing, so that I would not be able to secure a Makerbeam mounting bracket with more than one screw. I have looked through other options, but so far nothing has seemed a good match. Anyway, thanks for any advice. --Mark
