Thank you Dave for the kind words. It started life as an axle made by HPI racing but they just did not want to bother with a little guy like me & just brushed me off with my design conversion.I have sent two to England to two friends that I knew would give me an honest opinion warts and all. It is not my intention to produce them for sale, the sole intent was to make something to put that dreaded Huco to shame. Most of you know that the two guys I trusted  to test it was Dave Martin (  Norseman) & Dave Milburn ex ACTion guru. However I have gained several good friends on this forum & would be happy to make one for you at dead cost. One axle is $20.00 (two in a packet, $40.00 ) & posting was $10.00, total $30.00 or about 20 pounds each. Tony & Essex I have you on my list & will make one for each of you, but I require measurements as each is custom made to fit your motor & shaft. We can talk later through PM. A final note if you want to make your own it is not hard but you do need the best drills,taps & dies. PM me for details. Mick B.

Tony I can oversee the job for you in August, but I can't however guarantee Mick's sobriety level as I intend to be a thoroughly bad influence on him. ... CV joint really is a nice piece of kit and is crying out to be manufactured commercially  O0

Hi All,
I alway's use either the Robbe or Graupner direct coupling,not only does it align your shaft and motor it's simple and keeps the torque.

Hi Guys I made a full set of fixed couplings on my lathe which I use to initially align the motor & propshaft. I then enstall my C/V joint. I should point out that even if you use a solid connector to align the shafts, when you tighten the bolts/nuts on the motor mounts it will distort somewhat & you are well advised to install a joint to correct any possibility of misalignment.Mick B.

Hi All,
I use either the Robbe or Graupner straight rigid couplings, never had any problems and the motor/prop shafts run true and straight. I run some torque motors on my models all geared either Robbe or Graupner, I have never found better motors.
You will soon know if you have misaligned it when fitting you will see it.

Thanks destroyer42........when I searched for Graupner shaft couplings all of the usual Huco style & dog+bone style appear.... but not rigid couplings
When I search for Graupner 3382 couplings.....BINGO......they appear  :-))  .....Derek
