So what's the best source for our bed leveling springs?

So what’s the best source for our bed leveling springs?

this is where I’ve got mine from, great quality springs http://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/6262524155.html?orderId=63972901585482

Bought 1mm spring steel wire and made them myself with an accu drilling machine. Functional but not as nice as the ones from ali. Advantage of DIY is flexibility, I also made some smaller ones for my extruder from the same wire.

@Anthony_White ​ I bought a hand full from a local surplus store 3cents each. Where are you located, I will send you some.

clothes’ pegs are a good source of cheap springs from the dollar shop

I’m in Los Angeles, but have rigged up a solution with some doubled up weaker compression springs that will work for now!

@Anthony_White private message me your address and I will drop them in the mail.

I found some at the local Ace Hardware store, which makes me think Home Depot or Lowe’s might have some, too.

EDIT: Yep. Not as cheap as Eric Lien’s offer of free, but if you just want to run to the store to get one now…
