Peaking the dropped 33-36 axle was a labor-intensive process. It was my first attempt and took ~80 hours, but I learned as I went. A second one would probably take only half that. Also, I didnt actually remove much of Henrys forged steel. Instead, I added a peak, filled in low spots and leveled everything out. Heres how: 1. It started out like this- with a forging seam the entire width, top and bottom. 2. First, I welded a long bead on top of the raised forging seam, then long beads on either side of it, the entire width of the axle. I also filled in some gouges. I used a Lincoln 140C mig, 0.025 EZ-grind wire & 75/25 gas. 3. With a 4 ½ grinder and a dremel, I ground two flat surfaces to gradually form a center ridge. The dremel worked best in the concave curves between the spindle and spring perch holes. I tried to avoid the beams outer edges to keep from making them thinner & weaker. 4. I hand-filed flat sides on either side of the ridge using a wide file for big flat areas and a round or semi-circle one on the concave curves. A diagonal cross-hatch motion (like block sanding) worked best. This took forever 5. Hand-filing revealed more gouges. I went back and filled them with weld, then ground them flush and continued filing. I also smoothed the front and back sides of the axle (like where the spring perches are). 6. I tried to file the entire surface (NOT localized areas, which would create ripples in the final product). The goal was to make the whole thing flat.
