I know this is reviving an old thread but thought it was useful.
I just got an MP10 the other day and I dropped the wetside getting ready to place it in the tank :mad::mad: cracked the shaft in half the wet side still works but its got a slight rattle if I turn it up to high. I think i am going to try the heat shrink tube

Buy some heat shrinks , apply one on the shaft , heat , then repeat with a slightly bigger size . Seems like a permanent solution. My mp10 is still running strong with this fix after breaking the ceramic shaft six months ago !

I’ll second this repair option, it has been working perfectly for me as well.

I have 2-3 MP10’s working like normal with 1-2 shrink wraps. For some reason 1 shrink works on some, while others work better with two shrink wraps.
I have 3 wet sides and they still work but the ceramic shaft are broken. When I found this article I did try some different shrink tubes. I tried one and there was some movement with the blade and two too tight. I will keep trying because the wet sides are expensive.
