Abstract : A flexible shaft coupling has first and second rings 24 and 30 with a spacer 38 there-between. Axially projecting pins provided on the first ring are received in bushings provided in the second ring. Each bushing has coaxial rings that permit each ring to compress differently under the torque load carried by the coupling. Vibration attenuation is realized without reducing the torque loads accommodated.
