Yes - I removed the bearing from the Wheelbarrow. This left a large hole
(roughly 25mm or 1 inch in diameter, give or take a couple of millimeters)
where I could put the axle through and weld. See:
If I ever had to remove the wheel or axle (which I didnt), I could always
have easily grinded off the weld using an angle grinder.
If the hole left in the wheelbarrow is too large after the bearing is
removed, you can insert a "bushing" or a larger piece of metal pipe to
fill the gap. E.g.:
If you can find a 1.5inch diameter pipe, it may fit inside the wheelbarrow
hub, and in turn the axle may fit inside the piece of pipe.
If the gap is very small (2mm in the difference) you could try cutting a
coke can, and rolling up the aluminium around the axle to fill the gap.
Then weld the steel axle to the wheelbarrow hub.
I hope this helps. If you have any other questions etc. just let us know.
Best of Luck,
