I'm on my last set of points and have not bought any in years. I assume most are made in China or overseas somewhere. Can anyone recommend a brand worth buying? Thanks.

Genuine Delco on Ebay, Ranging from $10 to $100. Most are between $10-25. I just bought a set for $7.50.
Delco-Remy D-106PS.

There are also BlueStreak points from Standard available..

Good information. Based on my experience with old capacitors (condensers), I like the idea of finding a set of original points, but I would go with a good new condenser like Blue Streak. Capacitors have a finite life, and I'd be suspicious of one that is more than 10-20 years old. The first thing I always do with an old jukebox is replace all the caps, or you risk frying a transformer (my other expensive hobby).

I've been seeing reports of condensers being bad out of the box. Save the old condenser! You may need to go back to it.
