1/16 " music wire will work, if you want strength,but I don't know of that small a steering arm.
I like your drawings.
Thanks EE, that's exactly what I was looking for. I did some searching for steering arms and came up with plenty of those plus some leads into just using a wheel collar with a threaded rod. Duh. So simple. Yes, I'll bend my own.

Dang, a fella takes a couple of decades off from building and forgets the simple stuff! Man, that's a long time though!

@lindart - yah... I DID remember that trick from my prior days.

Continuing to clear the cobwebs here!

Thanks all.
