Making Tube Drive
I used a arrow shaft to make some for my Nexus and just found a bearing and made a center support for it

I used to do tube drives for my Kalt Baron 30, Enforcer, Concept 30 and all the Robbe machines that I own.

Beman Hunter makes arrow shafts. Min Air has bearing adapters, bearings and cups for .750x.035 wall tubes. Most likely you will have to machine a single bearing support for the center of the tube and then machine adapters for the tail and the input drive itself.

It isn't really hard but there is some measurement involved and the tube needs to float a little in terms of end play, about a mm actually is good.

For the bearing support, use the stock shaft guide for a SRX or VR.
It's part number KYOE6289 and you get 3 for about $8.

Order KYOE3110, Tail Pitch Slide bearings, or source your own 6x10x3 bearings. These fit inside the shaft guides perfectly.

I use KYOE7510 shaft drives from a Concept 60 because I use a longer boom on my 46VR and the normal size is too short. These are easy to disassemble and cut down to the length you require, or you can order the stock Nexus shaft drive. It's part #H3604
