Default Help with finding copper tubing wedges

Hello.Hope this is in the right forum.I have a radiator to make new for someone and am looking for the tapered wedges that seal the ends of the copper tubes.They are tapered and have a hole threw them.My supplier says that I have to order 3,000 or more.The radiator has 120 tubes in it so I need 240 wedges.I dont feel like spending $1,500.00 for 3,000 of them.Im not sure what tractor this goes on.The copper tubes are 1/2" OD and run vertical.Hope this is clear to someone.Thanks.
