Backorders/Out of stock Items - we have changed things so you can order things that are out of stock.

We accept orders for things that are out of stock. However we will not ship you order to you until we can send it to you all at once. We will hold on to you order until everything on it is available.

  • If you want something urgently only order it if it is in stock
  • If you want something that is out of stock then order it and we will add it to our next monthly order from VEX.
  • If you mix in stock items with out of stock items your order will be held until everything is in stock.
  • We will need payment even though the backorder has not been delivered.

High Strength Shaft 12" Long (4-Pack)

Larger 1/4" shafts are tougher, stronger, and ready for even the most stressful robotic applications. These thicker shafts are more resistant to both twisting and bending fatigue, meaning that you should have no fear of designing high-torque gearboxes or high-impact drivetrains.

Description

Larger 1/4" shafts are tougher, stronger, and ready for even the most stressful robotic applications. These thicker shafts are more resistant to both twisting and bending fatigue, meaning that you should have no fear of designing high-torque gearboxes or high-impact drivetrains.

    Works with all VEX High Strength Gears
    Works with the 3.25" Omni Wheel and 3.25" Traction Wheel
    Length: 12"
    Use the 12" to make your own custom length shafts

Application Example - Using High Strength Shaft Bearings to Support High Strength Shafts

VEX 2", 3", and 4" High Strength Shafts are actually designed about 1mm shorter than their respective 2", 3", and 4" 8-32 Standoffs.

This means that if you use standoffs to hold together two pieces of metal, the High Strength Shaft can rest on High Strength Shaft Bearings attached to those two pieces without any cutting required.
