Due to Ian not having springs available anymore, and me only having a couple left...

I sent a sample to a spring company and had a order filled..

I had to order a large lot, so I have extra for sale..

Thought I would see if anyone is in need, 5 for 20 bucks is what I would sell for..

Thanks

I would love some, do you take Paypal? I'm in Texas, 77845 for the shipping. How are they holding up in comparison to Ian's?

Original is on the left...



Paypal is fine, gift preferably..

Can't say as to life compared to Ian's, but sample was sent to a spring company and they matched specs..

Edited- Shipping not included

Sorry for the crappy pic..

I got mine in over the weekend. All of my stock springs are still good, but I only had two spares left. Now I'm no longer worried! Cheers!

I think you mean .050" fifty thousandths of an inch, not .0005", 5 ten-thousandths of an inch.

Hi, do you recall the full specs for these springs? The load, sizes, rate, dimensions, etc.?

Fakum, no idea on the availability of the springs... But to install new ones you need to take the stick and gimbals out of the base, then reattach the stick to the removed gimbals. Use that for leverage and stretch the springs into place that way.

I am now desperate for springs, and having no luck ordering from the supplier in Australia I was advised to try. Help, someone. I have two springs left.

You may be able to buy springs from debolestis at the Eagle Dynamics forums. See his post about 3D printed gimbal parts and springs here:

Sorry Guys, Missed the conversations on here..
Still have plenty left , just replied to your PM ArgonV, I knew I had sent you some before...:)

Mr Blastman , I assume your arrived ok ? Wish I'd seen your post before, would have been able to calm your nerves lol

One issue did arise with a uber2 (not NXT) , it seems that there was a spring change between the series, they rub on the gimbal on the Uber2 so be aware there is a difference. ( Haven't heard if the user was able to correct it)

Gotta keep those NXT's alive , don't we smile

Argon,
How have yours held up or are you finishing off your originals now ?

I can't say for sure , but I don't believe I've had one of these fail yet, if I have it's comparable if not better- or I'm easier on it with older age smile

So far, I've only had originals fail - just replaced it with one of yours. smile I picked up a new Uber 2 Nxt modded Cougar a while ago, and just would like a spare set for it.
