Just an FYI. I contacted the owner of EZTBUCKET yesterday and he will sell you just the ends for a straight axle for $15 a piece. It would cost me more to drive the 4 hours round trip to use the lathe. Speedy- I will probbably do that just because of how much flack I have gotten over it, and if it comes out good I will run it. However i would like to use the axle to make my jig first and build a tube axle just in case I dont like the way the hack job comes out. It is awesome to finaly see someone with a little imagination and confidence. I don't remember who said it but there was a comment about the ends would have to fit into the tube for it to be strong enough. Take a good hard look at a store bought straight axle, the tube is bird mouthed and the ends are welded on. Seems to work fine to me.
