I've got a buddy with a mill but the axle is too heavy for both of us to lift up onto it in his home shop. He's the first I asked.
He referred me to another guy who would do it, and the price was reasonable but more then I really want to shell out at the moment. Can't blame the guy, gotta make money.
The site doesn't have rods of the right size but I know I can turn one down. But I think I've got a workable solution if I get the right size pipe. I hate this little bit of rig job but it will last longer then me, and still be 100% better then it was
