    I need to find a source for a package of Fox Valley Models wheel sets. They are the catalog number 3601-100. Out of stock everywhere I try including at FVM. FVM tells me maybe back in stock by October. Meanwhile I have been stalled for a long, long time searching and waiting.

    Help?

    :(

    Ken, I have lots of FVM 36" 0.540"-axle wheelsets. It is the 33" inch ones I am really low on. I can send you a dozen or two.

    I also have a dozen I can send if needed. I think they go for about 70 cents each, If I recall the list price for 100 is around 70 bucks

    MSRP is $80.00. When finally available again, through a discount e-tailer probably in the range of $65.00. Someone must have been hurting to finish projects. :(

    I can wait for the ones I need. I'm not paying that much.

    I'll send your wheels at the agreed on price as soon as I get home. (I'm traveling)

    I too need these restocked. My last couple of 100 packs had a lot of loose wheels mixed in.

    Until the FVM wheels are available again, check out the new Tangent 36” metal wheels.

    I am wondering how closely these match the FVM? My worry is how well they would work, with the truck sideframes I am using, (axle ends), from Shapeways.
