Does anyone living in the Tacoma/Seattle area know of a company that straightens I-beam axles? The axle on my 1927 Canadian Tudor is bent near near the kingpins and I am doing some research to find out if it will be less expensive to buy a straight original axle or to pay to have someone straighten mine out. I do not have the tools, nor the shop area, to do this job myself, otherwise I would. Any advice is welcome. Thanks.
I just sent mine out to Dan Hatch in AL.---PM him thru the forum.
Contact Steve's T service, Steve Tomaso, in Milton, Wa. 253-922-1914. He does a lot of service work and may be able to help you.
I gave Steve a call and he recommended American Frame & Alignment in Kent. I tried calling the number listed on the internet, but it is no longer in service, so back to square one.
Just get another axle Or find a local close by frame shop. .
I have about five used great condition axles. In California
Look for a machine shop or farm machinery shop(not a new equipment dealer) or a heavy machinery shop with a large press.
Jim, I think it might be cheaper just to get another axle than to try and straighten the one you have. There are a number of guys out there who should have a good axle that would be fairly reasonable.
I have been told that by several of the Carbon Canyon Members; however, since the car is Canadian, I wanted to keep the original axle with the car. I am not ruling out plan B, but my preference would be to have the original straightened, as long as it isn't cost-prohibitive.
