I am not sure I am understanding you, but if its an axle or spindle, thyy are made of Steel or Stainless steel, and are housed in Galvanized tube steel 95% of the time. I have never seen an aluminum one. 

Spindles are usually replaced as they have to be trued with a lathe after welding and welding and turning is more expensive than just buying a new $20-30 spindle.

If it can be moved, I would take it to Jorge Wong's tire/suspension shop/Shell Oil distributorship at at the traffic light prior to reaching the coca cola distributor in Guaymas.

He can source the parts and repair with or without welding as spindle usually are bolted on to the axel end plate.

Thomason in HMO has a Trailer parts buisness that sells all trailer parts including running gear.

If you still need a welder, Hernandez Machine shop is good, in guaymas. Rafael is mobile and is very good on steel, stainless and aluminum, but he is expensive imo. Luis at VIP would have his number. But this is routine work for a suspension shop and Jorge is good, fast and very reasonable.

I wouldnt trust any kind of a weld on an axle, if it's the axle that broke (and not the spindle). That bears the entire weight of the boat. And if it broke due to weakness in a specific area, it will likely happen elsewhere on the axle. The axle is probably compromised by salt water intrusion, unless the axle was simply overmatched by the weight of the boat.

Research getting a new axle. The peace of mind will be worth the additional expense.

If the break is in the spindle, replace the spindle.

Dont mess with welding any weight-bearing components on a boat trailer, unless it is for emergency purposes to get you to a location where you can replace those components.

Give us a fishing report or two. They are few and far between on this board these days.
