I suspect that eventually the bolt holes holding the sleeve and the mast will
"worry", and you'll get more and more "slop" in the joints. You could delay
the process by using hardened mast material as well as bolts, and maintain
VERY close tolerances between sleeve and mast.
I suspect that's why universal joints were invented...
