Bare Axle

This is what's left after removing the backing plate.

Once the backing plates are removed,the ends of the axle should be cleaned, and covered with something to protect them.

Both the threads, and the machined surfaces the bearings ride on are now exposed, and prone to damage.

If you're sandblasting the axle, be sure to protect this area well.
