This invention relates to a connection between a shaft and a component such as a gear, fan impeller, crank arm, etc, wherein the shaft is provided with axially spaced abutments to sandwich the component against axial displacement along the shaft surface. At least one of the shaft abutments is acutely angled to the shaft axis so that the abutments cooperatively form a wedge-containment system the component material between the spaced abutments is wedged against rotation around the shaft.
