Title: Shaft connecting device for a heald shaft

Abstract: A shaft connecting device (18) having a thrust rod (8) and a lateral support (4) that fit into each other with minimal transverse play. In addition, the shaft connecting device (18) has a clamping device (16) with a stop arrangement (60, 60', 66) and a fixation arrangement (30, 30'), the latter connecting the lateral support (4) and the thrust rod (8) exclusively on their respective upper ends to each other. Any opening, closing and adjusting of the connections between the thrust rod (8) and the lateral support (4) is possible in a particularly simple and convenient manner. The lateral support (4) and the thrust rod (8) support each other, thus resulting in a high dynamic load-bearing capacity. The overall design is simple, clear and cost-effective.
