Reference: shift-shaft

Reference information:
I think that the expression "shift shaft" doesn't have translation: shift =girare (scissors, for example); shaft= asta (e.g. il bisturi ha una asta). You can't translate 'strumenti chrurgici de girare e hasta'. So you'l say utensili chirurgici 'shift shat'. I think...
