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

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

RE: flex shaft
sleeve retainer has been tossed around.=========silver solder wiith bottle inside for cleaning should do the trick.
