Why did you cut the flat into it?

Mike, the flats were made with a pair of flush cutting dykes and a file to clean up the edge. Thanks Chris. Jesse, see you at DSC.
I got the ends assembled on the rear end last night. Looks pretty good so onto the axles tonight then I need to figure out the caliper brackets.

Mike
When i first read your question I thought it said how not why lol. The early 9" ford rear ends had that on it. The later big bearing ends had it on top and bottom. What they're for I don't know other than maybe identification, if I had to guess.

Ok, so I managed to make one axle tonight. I'll make the other one tomorrow then I need to get back onto the 73 El Camino project. Hope to have that done for DSC in 1.5 weeks so it needs to come first at this point. I still need to debur it but at least one is done! After the axles are completed it will be the ladder bar brackets and other bracketry that should be on the rear end.
 
First step to making a axle.....

Once the stub that inserts into the axle,  and the OD is machined I flipped it in the lathe and finished machining the opposite end.......
