  • Crush Tubes?

    I am building a new MIG cart for my 211.
    The lower frame is .065 wall 1 x 2 and the front axle is solid rectangular.
    I made some brackets from 3/16 to bolt the axle to the frame.

    I'm wondering if I should employ crush tubes in the design, to keep from crushing the tubing where the axle bracket attaches through the tubing frame?

    I'll most likely use 5/16 bolts.
