The Old Rusty Axle
Well, here it is...pretty sad looking, huh?
Yes, I could have just bought a new axle, and saved all the effort, but they really don't make them like this anymore, it is extermely heavy duty, and like new (with exception to the rust...) besides, I hate throwing things away.
Most old trailer axles didn't get a lot of use, they were parked somewhere, and there they sat, for years and years.
This was one of them, for being 55 years old, it has almost no wear.
You're probably thinking I'm nuts by now...and I may be, but watch as I take this old axle apart, clean, inspect, paint, and reassemble.
