One thing not mentioned, and lots of guys are making assumptions, but WHERE on the shaft? WHAT rides there? Bearing? Bushing? Sprocket/gear?

In a pinch, it works and if money is tight, by all means do it. Being a machinist I try to do it right if at all possible but even I have had to weld & grind something down in a pinch.

Some guys are ready to condemn a practice, but some times it's all a guy can do to get the equipment back in the field. While I would build it up and spin it in a lathe if at all possible, it's-your equipment...-your budget...-and your time... Do what suits you and gets the job done.

Its a NH rake axle and the bad place is where the frame bearing attaches to the axle. The axle housing broke and they used a couple muffler clamps to hold it together and they really ate into the axle a place about 4 in wide. I googled info and there is alot of conflicting info on how to weld/build up an axle.

For that... you can probably weld it up decent enough like Don suggested... then grind it reasonably smooth with a flap disc. I'd probably take it a bit under size then use the green Loctite to set it up. Should be OK with that.
