VEXpro offers several different lightweight shaft stock options made from both 6061 aluminum (for tube axles) and 7075 T6 Aluminum (for high-strength hex shafts handling torsional loads). These shaft lengths are correctly toleranced such that they fit perfectly through bearings and hubs, without extra work.
While it's tough to get excited about a few pieces of shaft stock, these shafts are specifically created to reduce user frustration. Do yourself a favor, buy some of the good stuff.
- 7075-T6 Aluminum (3/8" & 1/2" Hex)
- 6061-T6 Aluminum (1/2" Tube)
- Black anodizedanodised
- 18" or 3' lengths

D Shaft Adapter Hubs bridge the gap between some of the different building systems in the FTC community by allowing easier accessibility to VEX EDR gears and wheels.
D Shaft Adapter Hubs are meant to go on either 6mm D Shafts or 4.75mm (3/16”) D-Shafts. They have two different bolt patterns. The first is the 4x #8-32 tapped holes on a 1” bolt circle, which is commonly found on VEX EDR gears, sprockets and wheels. The second is 4x #6-32 tapped holes on a 16mm bolt circle, which is commonly found on Tetrix, Actobotics and AndyMark products.

The proverbial glue that holds your robot together. VEX EDR screws come in a multitude of lengths and two standard head sizes, 6-32 and 8-32.
Locking screws have been coated with a thread locker to help keep them locked into place. A locking screw can be installed 10-15 times and still retain a firm lock.
There's nothing more frustrating than a stripped screw. With VEX EDR Star Drive Screws, this becomes a thing of the past. These grade 8 screws were designed to withstand a great amount of torque, which allows builders to truly "lock down" their mechanisms.
Note: Screw sizes are available in Hex Drive, or high-torque Star Drive.
