I remove the standard shaft. Buy 4mm x 300mm silver steel rod from and cut it to size. Then I file a small flat spot and press fit the shaft in the bell with my vice and tighten up the bell's grub/set screw. Not very precise but the speeds are not that high.

Hello, the brushless motors you use, these have a long shaft right? Do you have a link where to find these? Thanks in advance!
