Default brass shaft tube

is there any way a shaft tube can move forward towards collett ??
replaced a collett insert this weekend and had about 1 inch between collett end and brass tube, ran about 6 laps yesterday ... today pulling it apart found shaft saver tight against tube, tore it up a bit and only like 1/2 inch between brass and collett..... but it doenst LOOK like epoxy anywhere has broken loose....
im still a rookie... suggestions or anything to look for ??

Yes I have replaced my tube for the same reason. Dremal and 30 min epoxy or Fiberglass resin. I cut light fiberglass cloth cut like a piece of pizza-- added it around the rough up brass tube were the bond will be. I tape the bottom with blue paint tape. I use a thin China hand saw blade from Harbor Freight.to remove the ski

I've pulled the stuffing tube out of a JAE 'rigger but it wasn't easy without removing the ski. If the tubing was heated before you bent it, it may still be flexible enough to pull it out. If you can slide it back into position then it will be so much easier to fix.

I'm cheap and too lazy most of the time to take 15 minutes to drive across town to get one! I've been wanting to get one of those anyway, I just need to make a shopping list for the next time I go there.
I can't do anything the easy way anyway, my wife will tell you that. It was tricky to get a new piece of tubing in here but I managed to do it.

better get 2 as I use mine until they get dull. Going on #4 now. And they are sharp. My rigger stands are made of oak.that will dull-em faster. But if you get your hulls built for you then no need. I like one winter build. Nothing else to do.
