I’m a touch confused. I thought the bearings (bushings) had to have tapered sides also to be effective with the needle point axles. I looked on your website and the bushings I saw were the eyelet type.
Rich, it will be interesting to find out if the pointy axles perform better in the brass bushings than your standard AF axles in brass bushings do.
I’m thinking of calling Lionel to see if they will sell their freight car bearings separately. I probably should also try Athern like Bob did.
