problem with boat trailer

8 posts in this topic

does anyone know of any welding shops that would be able to weld a new spindle on my boat trailer. I was coming back from a lake that was 3 miles from house when I blow out one of the bearings and when it happened it chewed up the spindle. one shop I talked to refused to weld spindles. I was told to find a complete new axle but I don't know if Midi Trailers are still made (mine is a 1994 model)

Take the axle off. You can go one step further and grind the weld and remove the spindle. Go another step and get the replacement spindle. Now you've eliminated the headache for a shop to find the spindle, get in his car to go get it.

Now look in the yellow pages. There will be plenty of guys that will take your business.

I have the new spindle and hub but need to find a shop to weld it on. crystal welding told me they won't do it because of liability issues.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
