English term or phrase: auxiliary shaft shears
In a conversation between a teacher and an engineer the engineer explains that there is a problem on board of the ship they are supposed to travel on which will delay their departure.

Teacher: "So, what exactly is the problem with the ship?"
Engineer: "Oh man. You don't want to know."
Teacher: "Yes I do."
Engineer: "Well, the auxiliary shaft sheared. You got a clue what that means?"
Teacher: "No..."

What is the correct expression an engineer would use in German?
My translation: Die Hilfswelle ist abgeschert.

Does that make sense? Is that what an engineer would say?
