I'm taking a guess that it is the spindle attached to the mower blades. I'm not familiar with this term and correct me if I am wrong. This is a great website!!

:wave: trackcar! Welcome to GTTalk! I was confounded by that terminology when I first heard it as well. I think that it specifically refers to the entire assembly of the housing, the spindle shaft, and the bearings. I also think that it was a colloquial name given to the part as most of the parts lists that I have seen call it the spindle assembly.

Welcome to the forum! I think that quill is also used in the machinist world for some of their parts. Try this.

The shaft on a drill press that is splined for a pulley is called a quill.

A quill is a blanket your grandmother made out of rags.
