Metal Technic Axle - Looking to Purchase

I'm completing a project (ferris wheel) that utilizes a technic, axle 32. Unfortunately, there is tremendous pressure on the axle and it's not able to hold the weight. I have reworked the design as much as I could, but the wheel cars and support are simply too heavy.

Does anyone know of a place that could supply/fabricate a metal technic axle of 32 length?

    @canon03 , if your design permits it, have you tried a series a 2L axle joined with Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Angled #2 - 180 degrees or Technic, Axle Connector

    If there is not a "force" pulling the axle, it can make strong long axle. if sometimes you have to go through a technic hole, you can also use a 3L axle.

    Hadn't thought of that. Using the connector will "bulk" up the connection and should make it stronger. The "wheel" runs over a series of rubber tires, so I'll have to see if a connector will fit in between them. I'll give it a try...thanks.
