Axle plates for your custom frame! MechWerks has a wide line of axle plates. Stock versions are pictured and priced below. All plates are CNC plasma cut and provided unfinished and “as-cut” from the plasma. This condition leaves a slightly rough edge that must be sanded down and finished by the builder. Axle slots also need finishing. A mill does a good job on the slots but plates can be hand finished with a disc sander, die grinder or even a Dremel tool with sanding cylinders. As you look through the examples keep in mind that it is relatively easy to create a cutting pattern based on a drawing you provide. Email us at with a picture of your needs for a quote.
