Received a second quote from another supplier with a 100pc. minimum at $49.00 each set. 50 pins, and 50 bushings satisfy their minimum order quantity. In this quote as example the total would be $49.00 times 50 pins and bushings equaling in subtotal $2450.00 FOB China. I don't have a clue as far as shipping myself and I've asked for that for reference.

Received a third quote which is the same business operating under a different name than the second??? Same figures but a different contact name.

Oh well, I'm not needing any parts but hope the tidbit of research I've done helps someone out along the way to keep an older machine operational a while longer.

I was talking with my son in law whom works for Martin equipment and he mirrors what you stated on track work. They have a truck press and it is seldom used. The pin presses on the service trucks get regular usage, but all tracks are mostly wholesale replaced with SALT tracks except on very rare occasions. When someone wants to be cheap, or is looking to trade the machine off after tightening up the chains is about the only use the track press sees.
