  • What Are Trailer Axle Spindles Made Of?

    What are trailer axle spindles made of? Are they mild steel? Cast iron? Cast steel? A "tougher" steel?

      So, if I were to take on a "project" for which there was no replacement spindle, I could make a new one out of cold-rolled on my lathe? I'm considering an old tractor that has been sitting in a field for decades.
