Just recieved an order of brass 3.8 and 5.6mm modules from eBay seller exisitotem. The 3.8's were normal but the 5.6's have a shorter, stronger lens spring. There things are great! Way tighter than the old version. The lens is tighter and easier to focus. It's like having the external spring. I ordered thier 10pc. 5.6mm brass module pack for $15.

I'm always on the lookout for good internal and external springs. Did you mean to type existotem? Unfortunately I didn't see any springs for sale by themselves.

They came in a 10 pack of modules for $15 and yes that's them.
To me it's worth it to order the modules for the springs. I just got lucky, maybe you could messege them? They usually reply to my messeged promptly

Do you have the direct link?
Noticed they have a good price on the bdr-209 sleds.

Hi Pman,
I put a pic of the springs in my signature below. The shorter one is the new one and is imo 4-5 times as strong as the normal one. It's pretty stout.

I make my own from scavenged springs and when I went to home depot hoping for parts trays I only found a multi spring blister pack with 200 various mics springs. :yabbmad:

But I found some and I cut down and reshape the ends for externals, I wont pay what ever that crazy price was I saw at survival, I love their safety glasses and don't mind paying for quality eye protection regardless of the markup, but 10 dollar lens adjusters and .....what was it 5 for 20 dollars? 4 dollar a piece little springs.....no, I make my own.

Search on ebay and buy a 1000 pack in a plastic assortment tray for 20 dollars, not 5 little springs, sorry but that's just not going to happen.

Harbor Freight has even cheaper spring packs. Most of the time I don't like how little tension the ones that come with the standard diode modules have. I can't stand wobbly focus knob and battery rattle. I have to admit I don't understand why those spring prices are so high when I can buy lenses for that much.
I must be missing something as I don't see that spring pic V. You don't have the original link to the modules?

I know this is a little off topic, but I gave up on those nickel plated brass modules in favor of the copper ones. I found the cheaper ones didn't transfer heat nearly as well.

I'm using the brass modules for anything under a watt, seem fine for that and WAY cheaper.

Yeah, I was having trouble trying to push some LPC-840s in brass modules and found they could be pushed harder in copper.

Hi P,
