Default DD shaft steering wheel adaptors?

It feels like the Mandala effect. I can buy DD shafts and couplers but where are the DD steering steering wheel adaptors?

I don't think I've ever seen a steering wheel DD adapter.

I've never seen one.

EDIT: A quick google search and I found this. I know nothing about it. https://www.summitracing.com/search/...style/double-d

I've welded a quick change steering wheel adapter to a double D shaft, no problem.

I pinned and welded mine on too...it was only a problem when I removed the steering wheel, it required some grinding and cutting, which I just went thru on my steering rebuild a few days ago.

So there are double D shafts and collars and u-joints all for steering but now somehow no one thought of making a double D quick release wheel adaptor?
I remember having them but you all are saying they never existed.

I will heat my round shaft adaptor and hammer it to shape and then weld it now that the correct adaptor no longer exists in this version of reality Bob

I have to make my adapters, like you are, E-man. Usually, I'll be trying to mount an old steering wheel on different shaft so a store-bought quick change one wouldn't work for me. I haven't mounted an aftermarket wheel on, yet.

Iím thinking I saw a weld on stub in the Speedway Motors catalog. It was splined on one end, not sure on the other. Wouldnít matter if it was round or double d as long as it was the right ID to fit your shaft. Pin and weld.
