Just curious, besides me is not using securing collar with axi motor?
I have had many axi motors and in the last 5 year never had a problem not using the collar
Ordered a new axi 2814/16 and wondered if its a good idea or not?

I've never seen one come apart. However the collar does not weigh much and that extra safety is just a good idea methinks.

As you get to more powerful motors they are a really good idea - so why not?

Should not be much of an issue if you use a collet prop adapter on the shaft side of the motor. If you use the prop adapter that bolts to the bell, you should use the collar.
