    Making splined shafts/axles, heat treat before machining?

    I am getting close to making the shafts I asked the question about. I spoke to a heat treat house, getting material. If anybody is interested in the project I first had to respline the CV axles these shafts will be used with. I made a video about it I can share. Is that allowed?' Here is...

    Making splined shafts/axles, heat treat before machining?

    Great conversation! I am only making 1 or 2 of each shaft. These are CV axle shafts for custom AWD car build. I am leaning very strongly towards the the heat treat and then machine. I am going to reach out to my local heat treater today and see how long of a bar they can do and if they can...

    Thanks for all of the great feedback. It looks like I was not out in left field when it comes to heat treating the shafts first. I think that is going to be my plan. I am using carbide inserts from Advent Tool. They can cut the 45 Rc material no problem. Thanks, Tim

    Making splined shafts/axles, heat treat before machining?

    Hello, I am in need of making few splined shafts. I plan on making them out of 4140 or 4340 and heat treating them to 40-45 Rc. The longest one will be about 25in long, 1.125in OD and with a 1 module 27 tooth spline on both ends. I have made splines before and I have carbide cutters. In...
