    sherpa shafts are straight(no taper) so suited to be resplined

    axle ldv

    Friction welding is where two tubes or shafts are spun in opp directions touching till the ends melt, then pressed together bit of a specialist job. Might be easier to get them re splined

    talk to Roy Wilding, he'll sort you a pair no problem, no need to respline or cut n shut, he turns out the center of the flange and welds the flange back in position, then faces the flange square.
