Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2005: Where can I buy wholesale brass parts?

I invented an item that a few T'ers might like to have as a novelty. But it is not worth buying retail then selling wholesale to a T vender who will sell it for retail. I have a vender who will sell the brass part to me at his cost, but there is not much profit to split with him to make it worth making and selling. If the T store wants to carry 'it', they to will mark it up.

So, does anyone know where to buy wholesale brass parts?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Regards, Bob

Go to the source but expect to possibly purchase "whatever" by the thousands. Not always but in most cases the flow of products is factory, distributor, wholesaler, dealer, customer. Everyone below the factory adds a piece to the retail pie as a service to others for stocking and/or selling in progressively smaller quantities. As you work up the ladder, required purchace quantity increases.
