    Anyone know how I can extend this shaft for the L850 tiller ? It has a weird spline and I cand find an extension to weld on. The previous owner cut it and it was a bit short to begin with and I got a quick hitch which pretty much kills it. I can't find a new universal shaft because the slip clutch has a small spline hook up too

    Drive shaft place in your area? Even automotive drive shaft place may do ag or industrial shafts also.

    In my experience any good machine shop could fix you up.Maybe I'm missing something, but it just does not seem that complicated a job to me. It won't be cheap,but what choice do you have?

    If you are wanting the female splined section, I see that would be hard to find. What is stopping you from cutting the female splined section at the U joint , adding a piece of schedule 40 pipe.

    That's a good idea, just wonder if I can get it straight and balanced enough

    That's where the machine shop comes in. Chuck it up in a lathe and make pass to true it up and cut it. Machine the bore of the makeup piece for a tight true fit and weld it. I does not spin all that fast to worry about balance if everything else is true. Look for a local trade school.
