Re: Can you weld amc20 shafts?????
DO NOT weld the axle.
EVERY person I have known that has welded the 2 pieces together has broken off, usually while traveling down the highway. No matter how you weld it, it'll fail.
Do a search here, I even gave this advice about 6 months ago, and sure enough, a few miles later the tire fell right off. I got a little ticked because the question was asked, the advice not heeded, and exactly what I said would happen did.
I could care less if people weld their axles, what I don't like is them driving them on the road and having the tire come off, endangering other's lives. It's unnecessary and if I saw someone's wheel hurling towards me, I'd turn around and probably do something nasty to the driver.
Please, don't weld the axles.
