I’m new and wanted to introduce my self, hi. I have a question and would greatly appreciate it if some one could give me any info. I’m trying to make a bi-pod for a rifle and my question is were could I get the little springs that go with the bi-pod.
I work at a hardware store distribution center. We have hundreds of different size springs and I am always wondering what size would be right. If anyone has a 1/6 conversion for the size needed I could try to find them and give you guys a product name and number to order.
The diameter of the spring stock used in HotToys bipod extension springs looks to mike out at 0.010", you could cheat a little, but the HT springs sure look good.
Being an inveterate scrounger, I agree with the others that old and broken toys, cassettes, cameras, and players are great for small parts and springs. I haven't scrounged any so far, which replicate the HT springs.
Try taking apart some old computer CD ROM and floppy drives. Another source if you just want the look is light filaments. I just replaced a halogen headlight bulb and the remaining filament looked perfect. Doubt it stretches though. The spring that pushes up the flint in a disposable lighter also looks to be about the right diameter.
