I have 3 fairly good mainshafts that need the keyways recut, thought I'd take them into Berwick and get a price for this - see if its feasable
if so I'll let you all know as I'll have at least one possible two spare

There were, I believe, five different part numbers for mainshafts, none of which were noted on the shafts themselves, thus making ID difficult. It will be helpful if you can post the gearbox ID from which they came (STD, SCT, etc).
