    Default Another fine quality job to fix

    Just when I thought I had seen it all with the Grand Marquis I'm re-doing, this shows up at my door. This is a home made trailer and for what it is, it wasn't done too poorly until you get to see the axle that for some unexplained reason, it just bent.

    "I don't carry any weight on the trailer, so I don't know why it bent, can you fix it?" was the question. When I looked into the back of it there was a ride on lawn mower, a dozen or so 16" truck tires on wheels and at least a dozen or more bundles of shingles stacked up in there. No weight there! Oh, by the way, the frame is all done in 2" x 3/16" angle.

    The axle was built by taking a spindle and welding it to a piece of 2" channel (webs facing down) with some angle and mounting it with no springs. He still can't figure out how it bent. I did the repair with a brand new Dexter axle and springs and sent him on his way. Dave
