Default WTB-Align 550\600 torque tube ends from damaged TT's?

I am of need of a few used Align 550\600 torque tube end spines from damaged TT's for a winter project.

Just break the splines off and drop in the mail, I will pay for shipping and whatever you think is fair for your help.

I know this is a "strange" request, but, I to, fly heli's

Thanks,
Upright

I have been asked what I use them for:
I have successfully built two torque tubes for my 600 and am just looking for more splines for the dozen new Easton legacy XX75 2020 arrow shafts I have.

Here is how I do it:
The stock splines are left hand threaded into the shafts Align uses. I apply heat and back them out, then place the spline in my drill and lightly sand till the diameter matches the new inside diameter of the 2020 aluminum shaft.(recommend using calipers and I use a portaband saw to cut to length, you could use a dremal?)
I then apply some red loc-tite, drill a 1\16" hole and place a 1\16" role pin through the shaft and spline. For insurance, I use a small peace of heat shrink to hold the role pin in place. Don't forget to place the TT bearing on the shaft prior to the second pin!

Now that you know the secerate, talk some of your buddies out of their old splines and if you get enough, send some my way.
Being the only heli pilot in "my small logging village on the Oregon coast" , there are no available spare splines other than the ones I crash

Hope this helps?

Default tooth picks

We used to make them out of old growth timber
But the OLD man thought aluminum would be better¿
