Can You Make a Splined Shaft for My Machine?

Post by toddalin » Thu Jan 10, 2013 6:59 pm

I just got a ShopMaster Eldorado Tri-Power. Unforetunatly, due to poor quality control at the factory (i.e., mis-located scale), I've broken a short splined shaft. The shaft is ~1.25" long and the metric equiivelent of 0.4" ID and 0.6" OD for the inner shaft and 0.7" OD at the four splines. The originals are sintered, but I guess aluminum would work. Or maybe someone recognizes the piece and has a source for it, or a similar shaft that could be modified to work.

ShopMaster tells me that they no longer stock this part, the manufacture has closed, and they have no plans to produce it, so there may even be some market here as this would appear to be a sacrificial piece.

I've had nothing but problems with this machine from the start. I was just getting them sorted out, then this. :cry:
Can anyone help?
