Yeah with some good searching and lookout you can find cheap axles. but if you call businesses, they'll usually rape you...

so if you wanted to look for an axle..you would 1st start is the type of axle, then look for gears but if you found the right axle but had wrong gears would you move to another one or just swap em out or what?

well first you find the axle you want in good condition, then do a build up which can consist of new seal, bearings, ujoints, shafts, gearss, brakes, lockers/spools, mounting hardware, etc.

lol The welders even better. I have 2. a little dinky 125 Lincoln wirefeed and my 150lb beast from hell. Clarke 265T Mig 220 Volt 270 Mig Welder. Then for my bender I just have a Manual Trick-tools Model 3 bender. I'm hoping to have the Beileigh model 150 by April of next year so I can start fabricating extremely

Come get it gil. I've even made a cart so you can wrap every thing up on it and wheel it around all day long if you want and it never needs to be picked up. It's got like a 25lb role on it or somthing.
