Hello all,

Does anyone know a good source to purchase 5x9 journal brass and appropriate wedge/waste for friction bearing trucks? They don't need to be new, but they need to be in good condition.

I've got about 24 brass and about 34-36 wedges. All in good condition and were from operating cars. Some are even brand new. Do you have a phone number I can call you at?
