High Strength Shaft 3" 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: 3"

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.
