Devices having shafts may require that one part be solid and the other flexible. An example is a copier auger which requires a solid shaft at one end which is open to collect toner, and a flexible shaft to allow routing of the auger through the machine. Here, a continuous, sectioned solid and flexible core is assembled, around which is molded an auger.
