    I was wondering if any of you guys have a good source for the springs that go on the end of the stove handles? I've done a lot of searching on the web, and can only find very expensive ones! I've found a reasonable source, but they have a $40 minimum order, because they actually manufacture the springs. At this point, I'm about ready to just order $40 worth of springs, and pay the $8 shipping, with the hopes of using the extra springs later. All the stove shops, etc, that I can find online want anywhere from $8 - $20/ spring, and then ridiculous shipping fees...

    If anyone has a good source, please chime in. I'm looking for 2 of the "light bulb" shaped springs, to fit over 1/2", and one of the type that gets larger in the middle, to slip over 1/2" (kind of like a stovepipe damper handle spring, only a little larger). The two are for the door handles, and the one is for the damper control.

    Thanks everyone...

    Thanks WES - already looked at those, as well - but at like $12 shipping for a tiny order, I think I might pass.

    I think I may just order the $40 min, from this place (I'll have a few extra springs - if anyone needs any, contact me and maybe we can make a deal)

    Thanks everyone for your help.
