Cutting the key way. I cobbled together a bracket and a U bolt to secure the shaft.

I installed the motor on my compressor. The next sandblasting job will be coming soon. I get to try out my new to me Lindsay 200 sandblaster then as well.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

If you are not having fun then you are doing it wrong.

That would of kept the heat down, protecting the bearings and the new shaft would be auto aligned, so to speak!
I would have seriously considered this if I gave you chance to respond before I started.

However, I question my ability to solder this fast enough so as not to allow too much heat into the shaft. I can see myself spending a minute or more getting the solder to flow.

In contrast the MIG welding is very fast. I feel I have much more control over the heat input. If it is getting too hot I can stop, cant do that with soldering.
