how hard is it to cut an turn an axle? i have an idea on how its done, but i want to make sure i know how before i start. is there a write up already on this? and if not would it be possible to get one? :laughing:
Search for words "knuckle" "caster", that will get you threads cutting and turning knuckles. Basically, grind the weld all the way around the knuckle, using a BFH (might need some heat) set the caster (need a good angle finder, digital preferred, but dial will work) , then weld them back up.
Edit: Most recommend around +6* positive caster (top of the knuckle tilted back)
