Good job Bob. Your crate looks stronger than the one my Mitchell was shipped in and it arrived safely (but notice a couple of 2x6 braces are broken). Of course it didn't go overseas either.

They must have read my mind. Notice the 1/2 inch plywood at each end, and no glue!

when living in Florida I sold a multi-disc clutch & transmission to a guy in California.
built a box from 3/4" plywood and he gave me permission to cut off the shift lever so the box was smaller.......
I'm sure Mitchell has developed their shipping boxes to be adequately strong but still as light as possible.
Also certain they would make good on any damage, they are great people to do business with......

Rest assured I was not and would never doubt Steve and Cyndi. Not sure where you got the idea that I was complaining about their shipping box or the Mitchells in general.

I was ONLY making reference to their shipping box to show Bob I believe his box was more than adequate to do the job and he built his along the same lines.

The Mitchell is much heavier than Bob's axles and came thru with no damage.

I think a delivery truck could drive over the crate and not damage the axles.
