Where can I get a Torque Tube Shortened?

The times i've seen it done, they were for hot rods, and aside from the tube being aligned and welded back together,  when the shaft is cut down,  a coupling was welded to the cut end to accept a u joint. I would wonder if a company like Moser Engineering, or Strange engineering, etc. both of whom make axles and driveshafts, etc, and offer re-splining services, (if a local machine shop isnt interested) would be able to respline the shortened end, rather than welding a coupling to the end, which seems a little hokey. I dont remember if the shaft in my 1937 Buick is enlarged at the u joint end, which could make some new issues if your trying to connect to stock parts.
