    "your welcome to take the point away"
    No need to take the hump Brian.
    Just think a little more about what it is that you are trying to tell us and show us.
    Remember; a picture tells a thousand wordsπŸ˜‰

    Hi Brian,
    Very pleased to see that you decided to go for an 8mm tubeπŸ‘
    That leaves you some 'meat' to play with for bushes/bearings😊
    If you use a 6mm running tube with a 4mm drive shaft, as some have advocated, that only leaves you 1mm to play with for outer tube and bearings. Not a lot☹️ Resulting in a comparatively flimsy arrangement that I would only want to use for very short shafts at low revs. If at all.
    Personally I would regard 3mm as the absolute max diameter of a shaft in a 6mm outer, and then only for short e.g. >/=6" or so shafts.
    That's my humble twopenn'orth anyway.
    Wonder whose shafts / bearings will last longest 😁
    Happy buildingπŸ‘
    Stay safe🀞
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    I heartily agree MartinπŸ‘
    Such text posts are pointless (apart from ranking pointsπŸ™„) without the associated pics and some explanation of HOW!
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Brian, some set-ups use a small washer, then a nut, last a threaded prop. Other set-up is the washer, then a β€œDog”, a prop then a lock nut.

    Hope these images help.

    Ron
