Default Tired of waiting for new axle

I finally got sick of seeing my Jeep in pieces so I put my fab skills to work. Took me about 4 hours to get it just right and its not the cleanest work i've done but it seems to work well. It will at least get me by untill the replacements come.

7/32 to 13/32 brass tube layered to get correct (or close enough) inner and outer diameter. About 1/16 copper plate for the flat disk. I used copper because it solders up nice and is soft enough to machine with hand tools.
