ThunderHex Stock & Bearings will revolutionize the ways teams use hex shaft.
ThunderHex Stock works in all applications where 3/8" or 1/2" Hex Shaft will work and also includes rounded corners. These rounded corners allow the shaft to pilot inside a 10.25 or 13.75 mm round (ThunderHex) Bearing instead of a standard 1/2" Hex Bearing. This eliminates some difficult manufacturing tolerances and results in a MUCH smoother end result. Simply put, ThunderHex Bearings are the best way to create smooth-running hex shafts, and ThunderHex Stock helps you accomplish this without a lathe.
Also, since you're essentially putting a round peg in a round hole, no more struggling to align the hex of your shaft with the hex hole of your bearing.
Starting at: $4.99VersaHex Adapters allows you to change any 1/2" Hex Bore product to either a 3/8" hex, 1/4" square or 6mm D Shaft bore. This means that you can run a GT2 pulley on a 3/8" Hex Shaft, a VEXpro Hub Sprocket on a VEX EDR High Strength Shaft or a VEXpro 20 DP gear on a 6mm D Shaft. Each type of VersaHex Adapters come in 1/8" and 1/4" lengths.
The Mag Encoder is a sensor that measures the rotational position and velocity of the shaft driving your mechanism. After releasing the Mag Encoder a few years ago, we received a ton of positive feedback from the FRC community. However, you also told us that there was not an easy way to actually mount the mag encoder to a ball shifter. That is now a thing of the past with the Ball Shifter Mag Encoder Mount.
This mount allows users to easily mount a Mag Encoder to any existing VEXpro Ball Shifter. No need to modify any of the Ball Shifters that you already own! Now you can easily add a Mag Encoder to your ball shifter, and it only takes a few minutes to install.
New for 2019
The VersaPlanetary Press-On Motor Coupler is a press-fit coupler designed to couple RS-775 Motors with the VersaPlanetary.
The coupler presses on to the motor’s shaft and slides through the VersaPlanetary’s RS-775 motor mounting plate. No more split rings, and no more setscrews to tighten or worry about loosening.

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
Connects two sections of 1/2” Hex shaft together. Clamping design provides axial retention of both shafts, while providing high torque transfer capability.
- Clamped together with (8x) $4-40 x 0.375" Socket Head Bolts
- Allows for 3/4" of engagement from each shaft
- Use included holes to pin each side in place
- Flats on each side allow for the use of a wrench to turn the coupled shafts

Axially retain items on shafts with thinner than normal shaft collars. These custom clamping shaft collars are designed specifically for FIRST ® Robotics Competition applications where space on an axle is important.
- 8mm Round
- 3/8" and 1/2" Hex
- 3/8" and 1/2" Round
The 8mm to 1/2" Hex Adapter turns any standard CIM style motor (with an 8mm shaft) into a direct 1/2" hex drive. The perfectly toleranced 8mm round bore and keyway slide easily onto the CIM-style shaft and allow for use with items that have a 1/2" Hex Bore.
- ID: 8mm with 2mm keyway
- OD: 1/2" hex
- Length: 1.0" (25.4mm)
- Black anodized for superior performance
