Convenient & Strong
When our robotics team is designing mechanical systems, their first choice is 1/2 hex shafts. No need for key ways, set screws, or pins. For shafts over 6 inches, you need the strength of steel to prevent bending. We are using it for our 26 inch long shaft in our ball intake systems. Just cut to length, slide on wheels, spacers, bearings, and collars and it is done.

The shaft is listed as "Weight: 0.05 lbs per Foot"but the one we received was much heavier. AndyMark response: We apologize for the error, this has been corrected. The correct weight is 0.74 lbs per foot.
They are strong and work fine. In an emergency they can be ground down to fit a round bearing.
