Default Metal Skeins & Wood Axles Sandwich Saw

I have an original Sandwich Buzz Saw & Engine Truck.
Most of the truck, is made of steel & or iron. The I beams are ten feet long.
The original wooden Axles are beyond use with the metal Skeins.
Is it possible to convert from wood to steel axles, made of pipe or channel iron welded to the Skeins.?
From what I've found in the Stak records, It has not been done or talked about.
Because of the interior shape of the Skeins, & the fact that they might be cast iron. It wouldn't be an easy job.
From what I've seen in pictures, more buss saws trucks had steel axles, than the wood axles, I have, for my truck.
Any advice would be helpful.
