Sun Project air shaft & collar

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


My air shaft collar slipped and gouged the shaft tube. The gouging is pretty shallow, but the set screws are stripped and I'm stuck thinking of ways to fix it, excepting buying a new air shaft and collar (don't even know where I'd get one to be honest). I was thinking of repairing the gouges with a thin sleeve of aluminum and packing it with JB weld, and then either welding the collar in place or finding a new collar piece at Home Depot or the likes. Will these solutions work well enough? I don't know much about what happens in the shaft itself, so that's why I'm asking.
