Default Prop mounting question??

Okay, I know this sounds like a dumb question, but I just cant seem to figure this out. How do I mount a GWS prop on a GWS gearbox? I have a HiMax 2015-4100 w/GWS gearbox mounted on a 3D Foamy Edge. I have mounted and flown an APC prop, but now I want to try my GWS props and cant mount them. They are much wider in the center and do not fit on the prop shaft. Any suggestions? Do I need to cut down the hub of the prop? Is there some kind of adapter that I need to buy? Please Help!!!

I mount my gws props on the gws gearbox without a problem. Is your gear shaft too short? It shouldn't be, but if it is then you can grind or cut off one of the hubs, or buy a new shaft.
I use a prop save on my 3d foamies. This requires shortening the shaft.

GWS props fit right on my shaft. The hole isn't too big for the shafts on mine.
