Custom CV joint

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I am not a RC modeller but am in need of a component that some of you (I think - please correct me if I'm wrong) commonly use: A CV joint.


Problem is that none of those I could find on the web fit my requirements. I'm looking for a 24mm long, 8mm external diameter cardan joint that would have sockets for an X-shaped shaft on both ends (ideally no less than 6 mm deep). Capable of withstanding at least 400 mNm of torque.


Is anyone familiar with a company or an individual that could manufacture such a piece for a reasonable price? We're talking about a relatively small quantity (maybe 20).


Thanks in advance.

I don't see that they have CV joints specifically, but when I look for joints I usually look first at Dumas.
