Axis 8k60 | kit 260 cm
The Shaft 8k60 | kit 260 cm is a kit of 2 shafts that you can connect together.
The kit consists of a normal 8k60 shaft of 150 cm and a modified 8k60 shaft with a coupling piece on one side. This allows you to slide the shafts 40 cm together. This gives a maximum length of 260 cm.
Shipping long axles is expensive. Hence, this kit is the ideal solution, because it is very cheap compared to 1-piece axles of this length.
In fact, with the 2 parts you make an axle with a length of up to 260 cm.
So you do have an axle with the right length, without the high shipping costs.
You do not need any special tools, because you simply slide the two parts over each other.
You can use the axle as a normal axle, so all standard parts that you would use with axles in one piece, can also be used with this axle.
Just use the same springs, rigid joints, spindle spools and adapter sets.
The shaft is suitable for PVC and aluminum armor and slats. If you have wooden slats, we recommend an 8k70 shaft.
The wall thickness of the shafts is as follows:
base piece - 0.8 mm
extension piece - 0.9 mm
- Saves shipping costs
- Easy to saw to size
- Can be slid together without tools
- Can be used with all standard springs, axle sprockets, adapter sets etc.
- only available for 8k60 axles
