Does anyone have or know of someone that would part with a few of the LGB disconnects axle journal boxes? Or possibly 3D print them?

Hi Jason,

I have a couple of questions about your request.

Do you want the whole side-frame or specifically just the journal boxes?

Are you repairing your LGB disconnects or using the journal boxes to scratch build new side-frames/trucks?

If the journal boxes are worn, I'm thinking that you could repair a journal box by drilling out the axle hole and inserting a brass bushing.

Go to a fabric or craft store and look in the sewing section for eyelets and grommets. 3/16" or 5/32" ones might be the right size.

I have one set of side frames that are missing the wheel journals all four corners. That’s all I’d need to get it working
