ok so i realized at the beginning of my modding career that catch springs are a pain to keep track of if ur not careful, and also that the springs in pilot pens are strong and god catch springs. also i haven't tried this, but if you get the springs from insides of toilet paper holders and attach them to each other it might possibly work. if u ardy knew this don't get all mad and stuff i just thought it would be good to share. :)

What exactly is the point of this thread? I understand you want to share how you use a specific spring but you would not have to start a whole thread for that. The easiest spring to find is a spring at a hardware store or on mcmaster. If you want almost any type of spring, mcmaster is your friend. However, if you do not have access to mcmaster, your best bet is a hardware store. Why take apart a whole toilet paper holder thing or pen when you can get a better spring for cheaper. Just go to a hardware store and you will find what you need. I hope this helps.

Sure pens and toilet paper springs are fine but if you want a precise spring , go to a hardware store. Pen and toilet paper springs should be a last resort. However, you can do whatever you want...

If the pen spring is small, you could probably use it for a catch spring. The toilet paper spring is good for Mavricks. :)
