I haven't used Polymorph, although I am aware of it and how its used. If it works, great ... if it doesn't work, get back to me and I will print a shaft on the 3D printer, or turn one up on the lathe (FOC to friends here) and post it to you.Been a busy week with all that is happening but hope to have a solution this weekend. I do like the idea of the off fridge solution. So intend to use a clevis pin of the correct 8 mm dia. inserted into a shallow container of polyfilla. This will give
me a former which I can use to make a short shaft from Polymorph granules. I can then file the resultant plastic shaft to the correct size, and use as an insert for the araldite fix. If it all goes wrong I can drill out my mistake and start again.
The info I would need is shaft diameter as accurately measured as you can ... the width of the flat ... again as accurate as possible. We can discuss the best sizes, or I could make several versions with slightly different dimension and you use the best fit. Perhaps if I make the flat narrower than it needs to be and you could file it to finished size.
Anyway, I love an interesting wee project, so have fun with it ... the satisfaction every time you use something you fixed, is a joy !
