Re: Toyota Powersteering IS easy photos .
I did it that way because my drag link used a standard rod end, M16 x 1.5 thread I think. No sense in making something bigger if your just going to turn it down on the lathe anyway to put the threads on it. The weak point will still be where the threads end. I also didn't have a means to make a taper. If you can make the taper why bother with this method, make a slug, weld it into the toy arm. The arm will bust before your slug does.
