    Make one out of concrete but make sure it has reo bar in it for strength.... maybe even do one with bar and one without to compare? 🤷‍♂️

    Idea - I recently broke my hand and had a cast put on. The material forms perfectly as it is wrapped and it is amazingly strong. It may be expensive though, I don't know.

    Cover it with line-x bed liner That's stuff is super strong it can make an egg unbreakable so it should make the wooden driveshaft unbreakable

    Your guys should try to make a turbocharger and put it on a car and see if it works or if it does how much pounds of boost

    Go to a tractor supply and buy a fence post. It’s already round just get one that’s already the right size. Or use a friends wood turner to make your 4x4 round. No run out.

    try wood driveshaft but find someone with a lathe to get rid of as much run out and then you may have more success

    Should've gone to a dealer and told them you had issues with vibration while driving and have them inspect it.

    If you are going to try it with wood again might want to try building it out of plywood and using multiple layers glued together and possibly bolted down the length of the shaft maybe try and alternate the grain of the plywood when doing that.

    you need to laminate plywood and take to a woodshop to have it turned to the exact size!

    I think yall should try it with a nice wet green 4x4. Should be a little stronger

  • Morgan Adair
    Morgan Adair   1 days ago

    Apparently too much free time... put either iron wood or some extreme known strong in the lathe and turn it as well as put the remained shafts in lathe and true it all.... knotty wood versus clear wood yada yada

  • dionisis001
    dionisis001   1 days ago

    you should try screwing cylidrical pieces together to make a long cylinder and then do the same but with a hollow center so it looks like a tube to see if it's stronger.......
