Subject: [CR]Axle for Deore Triple

I bought the Deore triple crankset offered on the list by Rob Rasmussen a few days ago. It is NIP, including the BB cups, but not the axle. This is the classic Deore for Dynadrive pedals, not the Off Topic MTB stuff.

What axle would this take? IIRC, low end Shimano BB's were JIS, but Dura-Ace was different. Did Deore use a D-A type BB? If so, it may be difficult find one the right length for a triple. Will any other brand axle work with the Deore BB cups?
