Default Re: Split Tube Axle How To

The same idea, but with the bushing made out of steel (w/thin walled bronze bushing)....and the bushing welded to the axle tube, would be bomb-proof.
There are two things in life where penetration is really important....and welding is one.

Its all fun and games .........until somebody calls the cops.
