Here are two posts containing pictures that I could find pretty quickly.

Right, I know how you'd do it with a trimpot with a shaft on it -- you're basically using surgical tubing as a cheap shaft coupler... I thought we were talking about the kit US Digital Optical Encoders, and thought something somewhat more elegant was going on.

Nothing to see here...

Re: Source for Shaft Couplers

As you probably realize, the encoders depend on the shaft bearings to keep the encoder disc aligned. Surgical tube will not do that.

Ah, I must've misunderstood.

I've never seen the Surgical tubing method used with KOP encoders, only US Digital S4 series encoders. Though, You could take a 1/4" Pin and slide it into the KOP encoder and then attach surgical tubing to that... Not sure how to address the disk alignment issue though.
