in the discussion on that page they say the shaft is 2.5mm... others have said different.

You need to find somebody with a micrometer or calipers and measure the actual shaft diameter in mm. If you don't have anyone nearby with such a tool, Harbor freight sells them at reasonable prices. They do have nice metal and digital ones, but even something as cheap as this will work: http://www.harborfreight.com/6-inch-...iper-7914.html
