Refurbishing a Trailer Part V

Today we worked on the axle. We cut grooves in the spindles to match the weld seam inside the tube.
 Drilled 5/8 inch holes near the base of the spindle in the tube and then welded everything in place. We covered the spindles with Cardboard and aluminum foil to protect them while welding.
 We packed the bearings and installed the hubs.
  We test fit the axle on the leaf springs but found our U bolts are too short. Chris will see about getting replacements.
