Sketching and Modeling of rotor in DM

I am trying to sketch an enclosed beaker with a rotor inside it. Beaker is filled with water. Here is the geometry. As you can see that the rotor shaft is above the top surface of the beaker, so how should I extrude this rotor shaft? Extrude with "cut material" is not fine as it cuts the part of shaft outside the beaker. Any idea or suggestion?

 P.S. It is 3D geometry.

Won't you need a cylinder of air above the top of the water surface? You could make the air level with the top of the rotor.

No, I don't need a cylinder of air. Beaker is actually filled completely with water and covered from top. Only a small part of the shaft is left outside but I don't know how should I extrude it. I can not use "Add material" for this.

I would slice the shaft at the top of the tank and delete the end so that the shaft is at the same plane as the top of the tank.
