Most people are getting their spindles from Zach at A to Z Fabrication. I have bought several from them and they are good quality and the price is reasonable. Plus, Zach is a a forum supporter/vendor, so I am pleased to do business with him. Good luck. It sounds like your school shop class is a great resource!

I'd love to man, but unfortunately I cant start another project right now. Im in the process of selling my house and moving into an apartment (getting ready for the military to move us). It'll be a little while before Ill be able to start something new. I'm in a rush to get this trailer finished as is.

I didnt really have any plans to make a front bumper but once we get settled in where ever the military sends us, Im sure Ill get the itch to try something new.

The talent on this board is simply ridiculous. My hat's off to anyone that can fabricate something like that and do it so well and so precise. What an awesome job.

Excellent work sir! When my cargo rack/tire carrier is done it will be jealous of yours. Just beautiful welds and grinding there man.

Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."

I doubt that. I dont have any real talent, only OCD and patience. It goes a long way. My whole way of doing things is go slow, think it through, don't take short cuts and pay attention to every little detail. Do those things and you can make anything look good.
