« Part 1: The axle hub Part 2 of 20 Mule Team Borax Wagon series Part 3: Completed Front Axle »

Today I coated the Axle Cap & steering blocK with linseed oil, forged out the Axle Cap bands and several other pieces of hardware. Also milled parts for the Axle Hounds and tongue.

There are a couple steel parts, but mostly aluminum painted black. A good metal lathe and milling machine makes manufacturing parts a lot easier.
