Default 8" toy front axle tube thickness

Can anyone tell me what the wall thickness is on a 8" toy front axle? I need to cut and rotate my knuckles and I'm a little worried I'm going to deep.My understanding is that the ends of the knuckle where it goes into the tube are like the ends of a driveshaft.I've cut many of D.S. apart but I don't want to junk the knucke by going to deep.

Sure.

The axle tube is ~0.188-0.200" thick. (basically 3.00x0.188", but it varies a bit.)

Specifically referring to the knuckle balls, they are 70 mm (2.756 inches). So that is the bottom of your cut.

Thanks I had a miner screw up but it's fixable.
