Reply to "a source for wheel/axle sets? (Making lego trains for o gauge)"

I am going to play with this alot more before it's done. 

I agree that inside bearings would be better.   I will need to get the studs offset by 1/2 pretty quickly since I am looking at a 3 wide inside base.

I am going to further sacrifice the old plastic truck axle sets to see what I can get.   The thicker portion around the metal axle is molded 1/2 and 1/2 to the back of the wheels.  If I can get the wheels off, I can cut that axle covering section off.

I would still rather use metal wheels.   I am a 3 rail guy so a short from one wheel to the other doesn't bother me, and the rolling resistance of metal on metal is much lower than plastic on metal.

O well,  several iterations to go, we will see what happens.
