9 speed cassette issue

so I have a old white industies rear hub...you know, the beer can hub...and I put a 9 speed shimano cassette on there. the problem is with the last cog, there is not enough spline on the tip of the cassette body to engage the cog so it spins free. the cassette body is aluminum and the tip is stripped away. is there anything I can do?

Sounds like you're boned.

But the hub would still be good for a SRAM Red cassette...

If you can't buy a replacement cassette body from White Ind, you can probably get a welder to add material to extend the splines. Then just file them to the proper shape.
