This is what Bert Kammerer wrote in another post!!

Hello all,

First, I need to start by offering my apologies for creating any confusion. Being a factory pilot, I rely on rep input for a lot of these small things and I was misinformed by a couple of reps concerning this issue.

I spoke with the factory earlier and Align is not replacing shafts at this time due to the fact that 1) not all shafts have problems and 2) the shafts that have a problem can be fixed very easily by removing some of the material like Halert71 did. Just take a file or a dremel tool and carefully remove a little bit of material and this will allow the shaft to fit in the coupler without sticking.

Also, not all starter shafts have this problem, it is just a matter of tolerances during the manufacturing process that cause some of them to be slightly bigger than others.

Again, I'm sorry for creating any confusion concerning this issue

The USA should have made it.When you pay for cheap labor you get a cheap product. I can't understand why we don't make nothing any more? I guess where going to be a big fileing cabnet for the worlds goods.
