Looking for some insight on what to use for stub shafts and wire drives. There are lots of choices out there. I have had issues in the past couple years with some stub shafts breaking or bending. It seems one manufacturer had too brittle of material, and another was too soft. I'm looking for something in between. I don't know if there is something pre heat treated that is strong enough? I was looking at a few grades of tool steel in the annealed state. Let me know what you guys think.
