Thread: Measuring splines
23/04/2015 19:48:32

The outside diameter of the shaft is 17.75mm and it has 16 splines, but I don't seem able to post a picture.

I am more interested in how you measure them and where I would buy cutters from

Thanks Dave.

I am making a custom driveshaft that is picking up an internal spline on a Yamaha, I know of the different types of splines but don’t seem to be able to find any information on them, I will post a picture of the shaft tomorrow,

Thanks for your help

Can anyone tell me how to measure a spline on a round shaft, I know I can measure the od of the shaft and count the number of splines but it is the v angle and the flat at the bottom I am stuck with, can you buy a pitch gauge for this like on threads, also where would you buy a cutter for this.

Thanks Dave
