    if you have access to a lathe you can turn it down if the shaft comes out ( apologies 65 owner) and will go in a Chuck. Wouldn’t cost much if you could find a local machine shop. I could do it for ya but I’m Northampton for work
    sorry should have said die a thread on the shaft, there is normally a thread close ( I think mine is now metric ) and didn't have to take the shaft out to do.
