I TIG welded up the splines on a spider gear shaft for a Belarus 4 wd tractor, rough ground it with a 4 1/2 grinder then finish ground it with a dremel tool so the gears had a good slip fit. It had about 3 inches of spline gone in the middle of the shaft. I had it heat treated (case hardened) its been in the tractor for 3 years and the old farmer that owns it really uses it.
