a couple of questions regarding drive shafts......are replacement ones pretty much universal or do you have to get a spcific one for whatever model you have? also, can you buy short ones or can you cut down a standard one to whatever length you need? thanks.

Hi driveshaft for porter cable and flex are the same (long neck version) what make do you have? i might be able to source a short shaft for you - they don't work at all well when cut down as ends are squared off to fit in gear end, the rest of the shaft is round.

Are the Flex driveshafts the same thickness as the new style Porter Cable shafts? Just wondering as the last pair I bought for my Porter C. were a little thicker than what I was replacing and so wouldn't go into the plastic sleeve.
