Replacement bed leveling compression springs

Post by ketil » Tue Jun 25, 2019 10:58 pm

I have an early M2, I believe I've had it for 7 years now! I've unfortunately lost one of the compression springs located under the bed. I'm attaching a couple of pictures. Does anyone know where I can buy something like this, or what they are called? I bet makergear has replacements, but shipping a spring all the way over to Europe is probably going to be pretty expensive, so I'm looking for other sources.

Regards, Ketil

What you are looking for is a "stacked wave disk spring":

There are quite a few variables in specifying one. Even if you want to source it locally, I'd check with MakerGear tech support to get the right specs.

It's small enough that they may just toss one in an envelope & send it by post.
