Andy, interesting capping off of 1 inch in pic 5677. I agree with mounting the lights near the fenders, I worked at a Trailer MFG in Greensboro for 5 years and we did tons of repair, on just that Item. Also being able to replace the fenders is a big plus, and the channel for variable ramp placement. Again, thanks, Paul
Very nice job Andy.
Out of position pulse (like upside down) works really well!)
I wonder if you used your spot timer on the trailer fenders?
I never was a big fan of those features, until you have a
machine that has them. I love your table jig setup too.
Very nice stuff.
Andy, Are the axles welded to the main frame rails? In the photos it looks like they are? I have a triple axle race car trailer with torsion flex axles also. We broke a spindle, losing the tire, wheel and hub. Fortunately it bounced twice and went over the side of a bridge into the water instead of hitting somebody. I decided to replace all three axles after talking to Dexter, the manufacturer of the axles. My axles were also welded to the frame. I found out the recommendation was to weld a bracket to the frame and bolt the axle bracket to it. That would make replacing an axle easier. As it was with the axle bracket welded directly to the frame it was a MAJOR pain to whittle them off the frame. You bolted your fenders on but it looks like the axles are welded. If you damage a spindle it will be a lot tougher to replace it. Dave Germain
