Shaft Stock

1/2" ThunderHex. 1/2" Hex shafts. 3/8" Hex shafts. 1/2" Tube shafts.



  • 7075-T6 Aluminum

  • Black Anodized

  • 18" or 3' lengths


Note: Due to a manufacturing variance, our current inventory is slightly out of tolerance. The diameter of our ThunderHex Stock is oversized by (on average) 0.0003". This results in a press-fit into ThunderHex round bearings. Users who need a looser fit should gently sand the rounded corners of the hex.

Description

Details

VEXpro offers several different shaft stock options made from high strength 7075 T6 Aluminum. These shaft lengths are correctly toleranced such that they fit perfectly through bearings and hubs, without extra work; that's right, no more filing down your shafts before you can use them.

While it's tough to get excited about a few pieces of shaft stock, these shafts are specifically created to reduce user frustration. Do yourself a favor, buy some of the good stuff.

  • 7075-T6 Aluminum (3/8" & 1/2" Hex)
  • 6061-T6 Aluminum (1/2" Tube)
  • Black Anodized
  • 18" or 3' lengths

ThunderHex Stock & Bearings will revolutionize the ways teams use hex shaft.

ThunderHex Stock works in all applications where 1/2" Hex Shaft will work and also includes rounded corners. These rounded corners allow the shaft to pilot inside a 13.75 mm round (ThunderHex) Bearing instead of a standard 1/2" Hex Bearing. This eliminates some difficult manufacturing tolerances and results in a MUCH smoother end result. Simply put, ThunderHex Bearings are the best way to create smooth-running hex shafts, and ThunderHex Stock helps you accomplish this without a lathe.Also, since you're essentially putting a round peg in a round hole, no more struggling to align the hex of your shaft with the hex hole of your bearing.
