If your going for an axle Id step up the wall thickness.
I am not positive, but I think axles are somehow trued, or machined? to be perfectly strait? Maybe....well, I drove all summer on a bike with a bent axle. I think it will work, just be really careful if you weld on it to pre heat with a torch, weld it, then keep the torch on it and keep it hot for a few min, then wrap it in heat blanket or bury it in sand so it cools very slowly so you do not temper it at all.
