How to Support Shafts Using Shaft Bushings

Shafts can fall out of place or alignment very easily if they aren't supported properly. You can make a shaft more secure and prevent it from falling out of place by putting a bushing at the end of it. You can then connect that bushing into another beam or additional part. That will allow the shaft to turn but will prevent it from wobbling or falling out.
