is this a totally dumb idea?

I was looking around in my spare parts and i came across a couple yokes. Can I machine one out so they fit together back to back, bolt em together, and make my own ghetto double carden shaft?

If you do , your idea will wobble around in an uncontrolled arc , with no sense of direction . Were you at Mr. Surly's house today?

Re: is this a totally dumb idea?

I get it now.. I was wondering how they worked.. found a nice exploded view of one. Centering thingies to keep it inline, makes sense now.
