can someone please tell me the diameter of the shaft on Knife Blade Sharpening Jig Tormek SVM-45? I don't have tormek yet.

12mm.

If you can, take a look at one of the spreadsheets or calculators you’ll find in my signature... most have the dimensions of everything.  :)

For example... http://sharpeninghandbook.info/indexCalcProj.html has the basics.

True enough, 12mm.  But the jigs are cast parts, with a parting line down both sides.  Sometimes those parting lines cause binding.  I've filed them down when needed. 

Also, I found the shaft on my two SVD-140s to be oversize, such that my Pin Pivot Collar didn't fit very well.

Quality is like buying oats.  If you want nice clean, fresh oats, you must pay a fair price. However, if you can be satisfied with oats that have already been through the horse, that comes at a lower price.
