    Hi!

    I have seen and payed this drive shaft and it's a really good one. The hole is round so you aren't supposed to have problem fitting it with your DW. Also, it's a heavy duty one, and it will last for long. It's a big one, but light. I suggest you this one. Oe maybe trick's one, if they sell it alone, but I don't think they do.

    One good thing about the axis shaft, or a bad thing for others, is that it's ininitly ajustable, since the shaft, and not the universal joint, is round, so you can ajust how you want your slave pedal to be. A bad thing is that it's in aluminum, and when you screw it too tight, you will se marks on the shaft.

    Phil.

            Wow if that is the street price could it be worth 115.00??? I need to get a cost on the dw unit I guess. I was hoping like around $75.00

              The Axis driveshaft really ISN'T solid. I myself demolished 2 of them and switched over to elims, and alot of people over at the Derek Roddy board aren't too fond of them either.. The shaft shouldn't have been round..

                I also went from Axis to Pearl; not a big fan of that driveshaft.
