    OK. So the answer is to buy a metal lathe then :)

    I like the idea of replacing the flexible coupling but he doesn't explain how to straighten the threaded rod first.

    I'd wondered that myself, so I went searching...

    and

    both seem to fit the bill.

    I think I might give that a try

    That second one takes a loooong time to get to the point but it looks straight forward enough. Of course they may not even need straightened - I wonder how much wobble would be removed by having a smooth coupling to the motors

    You don't need to have a lathe, you just need to know someone with one ;)
