What can I do with axle shafts that no longer have a home?

Can't sell the POS D35 ones I have to save my life but I also have a set of 30 spline Dana 60 shafts that are not use-able to anyone because they came out of a 50" WMS Dana 60 full float (Zamboni). I used it has a seal driver yesterday haha! Maybe a hinge pin for a tire carrier? Shaft for an eskimo ice auger?

FWIW I've seen bunches of them used around here as corner pins for surveys. They sure last a lot longer than those cheesy wood stakes with a ribbon tied on them... :laughing:

I use one to tamp down my yard bin when trimming bushes and such. The lug studs grab the branches pretty good and compact them down into the bin. You can get quite a lot of material in bin if you keep tamping it down. Sometimes I wonder if the weight is too much for the truck to pick up, but it always goes :laughing:

Use them for dock cable anchors. They use them a bunch at tablerock and bull shoals lake in Missouri and Arkansas.

put a rim on it and weld channel or two large pieces of angle to it to make a tool stand. I got a bench grinder sitting on one except it’s an AMC 20 shaft

Save them in a pile for when you need random round stock about that size.

Feel free to mail that shit to my house. I'll chuck it in the scrap pile and it will increase the odds that I can complete any given project with nothing but shit from the pile. :laughing:

sent a flatrate of lead to brocko2 on here a while back
I could not get 70lbs in a large flat rate box
hand sorted to get all the steel and zinc out, just clip on wheel weights, packed in there with a sledgehammer, it was like 65lbs

they may as well say "90000lbs weight limit" on those flat rate boxes

During the COVID crisis and gyms closed, I had to make due with what I had around the shop so I welded some plate to the end of an axle shaft to mount some wheels up to (happened to by humvee headlocks with 42 TSLs) so I could deadlift.

i tried to upload a video but apparently it won’t let you upload MP4s

Is it really deadlifting if it's already 2 feet off the ground?
