Shaft Collars?

Postby sky_pirate » May 16th, 2012, 12:47 am

I know they're not an official ball-stretching device, but has anyone on here had any experience using industrial shaft collars for ball stretching?

When I started weight balls I use them, but I do not advise using it because they tend to hurt a lot of the scrotum, as the edges are slightly edged. You can use them, but at the base have to use one that is rounded like that sells Dave.

Shaft collars are sized for the shaft they are to go on with a 1/8 to 1/4 inch gap between the halves. So fully closed they are a lot smaller and out of round with sharp edges all over. They are out there in stainless for special uses. But the alloys we use (304 and 316L surgical stainless) have the nickel content well bound in the steel matrix so it dosen't leach out, It is a softer alloy that makes a weak clamp on a shaft. So they use a stronger stainless steel that may leach the nickel onto your skin that will create problems in long term contact with your skin. If not allergic now, you eventually will sensitize to nickel down the road and develop rashes.
The nickel info I got straight from my allergy doctor when I was having trouble with my earring that I used to wear when it was the fad.
Like latex, once senitized your are sensitve to the substance for life. I know quite a few people who can't wear metal backed watches even stainless for this exact cause.

Like Chumy, I tried them for cheapness and to get an idea of sizing, but don't consider them for long-term stretching. Are you US or UK based?

I'm actually based in Canada. I've ordered the shaft collar in black oxide coated steel. If they work out okay, I may order more, or save up for something from Secret Leather. I just wanted to start right away and couldn't justify the outlay of cash.

It's better if you use shaft collar type 303 or 316 Stainless Steel, don't put at risk your "nuts".

These collars are not readily available anywhere near where I live (rural Australia) and having felt the finish on some of the collars I have seen on some machines I have worked on, well, I would need to do some serious buffing and polishing before I wore them at all.
On the other hand, as a size indicator they would be fantastic! If someone were to make them out of plastic with the same dimensions (ID and OD) as the proper steel weights and they were cheap those of us that were uncertain of what size ring to buy could just order 3 or 4 sizes, pick out the one that fits best and order that size in stainless steel.
