Crown Shaft

I have 2 versions of crown shafts. They usually depend on the type of motor used and the brain cam design (this affects/determines the length of the rod and how it would be attached). The best attachment method is by recessed set screw so as not to tangle brain or finger light wires as the crown shaft rotates. The shaft to the left here is for the smaller motor used on the replica robot. The crown shaft to the right is used on the Hankskraft motor. It is shorter. Both are used on the larger delrin cam and can not be used on the Sanderson cam without modification.
