Roller axle shaft measurements
« on: August 19, 2019, 08:52:30 PM »
I have tried to find this info on here but no luck!! Looking for anything I can not find ,  I  am always told if it were a snake if would have bitten me!! 

Can anyone verify the length of the axle shaft and the center to center of the large tapper pin holes on a roller axle shaft?

I have 38 11/16 for he length and 36 5/8 for the center to center of larger of the taper holes?

I have the length of the shaft a little longer at almost 38 3/4. See photo.  From The ENDS the 3/8” holes are in 1  1/8” centered.  The holes in the shaft are not tapered on mine and I will have to drill them out a bit in order for the tapered pin to fit.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Paul ,  that helps. The one I measured Had shrunk a little due to hammering of the ends?

Wonder why the holes on yours are not tapered?

I believe 1.500, or  one and a half inches .  There might be a plus or minus torerance so check your roller guides to make sure .
