Hello, Most common is .028 dia. I used that on my National radio. I also put it together with fishing line crimp connectors. Very easy to use and looks like the original.

Hope this helps.

I have used Braid fishing line (cheapest possible). Worked great.

I used Radio Daze .030 dial cord to restring my SX-110 band spread and main tuning dial cord.

Make sure you thoroughly clean the tuning shafts of all grease and dirt before you start stringing
the dial cord. If there is any wobble in the tuning shafts, determine what's causing the wobble
and fix it before you string the dial cord.

I do not recommend roughing up the tuning shaft valley the dial cord wraps around. Just make sure
the dial cord is tight and strung according to the SX-110 manual.

If you do not have the SX-110 manual you can download it from my website.

Thanks to all for the quick help!...

Special thanks goes to Mike, W5RKL, for the suggestions and two links, including the one to your site containing the SX-110 manual. I didn`t have a manual, so that`s very helpful, not only now, but long-term.

I have the cord coming from Radio-Daze. In the meantime I`ll do the recommended cleaning, etc.
