Actually, it isn't that big a deal to make, and far cheaper than having a
new drive shaft made up, at least around here.  And yes, of course it needs
to have the correct mating at each side to slot into the flanges it mates

*I* don't have a lathe, and I wonder how many of  us do, capable of turning
something like that.  Any spacer would have to  be *precision* machined to
replicate the dimensions of the recess and  protrusion on the flanges as it
is this that centralises the shaft for  correct balance and not the bolts in
the holes.  Not a trivial task, I  suggest.  At #60 for a brand-new
prop-shaft without part-exchange I can't  see it is worth it.
