What\'s the wall thickness of the axle tubes???

I'm going to be welding my new perches onto my Toy axles and was wondering what the axle tube thickness was?

Thanks!
Steve

I haven't cut into the tubes of a Toy axle yet but the
metal that forms the pumpkin is 3/16".I had assumed the
tubes were the same.

I just double checked (I got a cut axle tube in the garage) and it's .244". You can weld on it no problem. The pumpkin did look thinner.

No wonder they're so heavy!

Thanks guys :-)
And you said it, those things were heavy! LOL Me and the yard guy had a tough time lugging them into the pickup. The rear was a lot lighter but the front was something else.

Cheers,
Steve
