I've welded solid drive shafts together on outboard motors before by cutting both ends at an angle (about 60), clamp both pieces in a bit of angle to align them and then weld.

but my so called engineering is a bit rough so best not to do what i do

I've also seen crankshafts extended by putting a matching taper on both pieces then pressed together and welded.
I like this way because in theory the taper should take the load.
