    RE: flex shaft

    thats a big debate there do you want to open that can of worms lol. i say silver solder, some say they use a certain type of loctite over on offshore forums. and they have the step by step there if you go the loctite route. good luck
    if you dont know you better ask somebody ! usarmy active 1989-1997, 1990 desert sheild /desert storm, 1993 somolia .

    Absolute best way is to buy the flex already soldered into the stub shaft. That is unless you are highly proficient in soldering.
