Checking Shaft Run Out

Checking Shaft Run Out

Once the shaft is cut to length it is then tested for run out. A good shafting shop should ALWAYS do this even with a brand new shaft. If it does not meet tolerance then it needs to be made true. This one was out by less than .001 for a 52" shaft.


This shaft was also checked for true after the machining process.
