Note: For a drive-shaft, check out d-shafts instead.
Based on 1 ratings:
This shaft has been 100% compatible with all the ½" diameter actobotics parts I have purchased (hub mounts, hub clamps, channels). The ½" diameter size is good because it fits through the large hole in the actobotics channels. I have been using it as a drive shaft with no problem with up to 15 foot pounds of torque at 100 rpm.
