Default Re: O/T What material would you use for new axle shafts?

I have made many brass era car axles. As directed by the sprint car community, 4140 has been my choice of axle shaft material. Additional heat treating is not necessary. Pictured below is our 1916 Stanley Mt. Wagon that I have also made new axles for. Our kids and grand kids are aboard.
