welding shaft...

YES,you can extend the shaft,grind both pieces of shaft,(original plus piece you are welding) into a V shape after grinding,hold pieces together,your V gap should be at least 1/4 to 3/8 inch,weld it GOOD,fill that gap,grind smooth,then using a piece of thin wall tubing,drill holes in tubing,put tubing equidistant from joint,,weld thru holes into shaft,then weld both ends of tube to shaft...it will be bulletproof.
