According to HC "We are sorry that we do not have the requested part in our stock list. Manufacturer only sell the complete set of item to us as it is the minimum profit for them."

Cross this one off my list....Moving on.....
Here you go:

I looked at the specs for the 3648 motor and it says that it's 70mm overall length. That shaft (for the SK35-48) is 70mm long. It is also 5mm which is what the 3648 uses.

So yeah, it should fit perfectly. And even if it doesn't you'll just need to use a collar on the side that the c-clip goes on (but only if the C-clip doesn't align properly).

Now of course the whole Backorder thing is an issue as well. I don't know when theyll get new stock on these particularly since we are still waiting for the new motors to be released.

But anyways, there you have it, a replacement shaft.
