You can buy them at almost any craft store or hardware store. I bought an assorted pack of 250 springs from Lowe's for like $3 or $4

Mcmaster has them, along with just about everything else you could possibly need.

When did this start? I tried to place an order with them directly last year, and they said they had stopped shipping internationally on account of them being too fat and lazy to go through the extra paperwork, or something to that extent :P I don't think they ever did change the part of their web-page that says they ship internationally.

All is not lost though; just call up one of your buddies in the States, and offer them a small commission to ship parcels to you from McMaster. That's the kind of deal I have going, and it's been working out quite well. If it weren't for the reputation you've made yourself here, I'd even say that one of our members would probably help you, but that seems unlikely in this case.

Looked on Mcmaster and under shipping information it reads:

Do you ship orders outside the United States?

We ship our products throughout the world using air and ocean transportation services.


So evidently they do, although it would probably take a while to get to you.

Do you have an ace hardware, lowes, or auto store around you? If all else fails, go to an auto store, and buy a grease gun and take out the spring, those springs are awsome, I think Spuddin' has used those.
