Making an axle for a 50 ton railroad jack

I’ve recently joined as a member/volunteer for the Midwest Railway Preservation Society. One of the pieces of equipment we have at the roundhouse is a set of 50 ton railroad jacks. One of the maneuvering wheels needed a new axle. I volunteered to make one as a replacement.
