    Does anyone know where I can buy just that small spring that holds the blade on an fc?
    Mine flew out and I cant find it. SW says I need to replace the whole thing which is $35!

    If you mean the spring into which the blade fits these generally come with the blades. When you buy blades be sure they include the springs which should be changed right along with the blade.

    I have a 45° and a 60° (arrow - CB09UA) that don't fit my machine.
    You can have them along with the springs if these are your blades.

    I believe SW sells them seperately. I normaly get my blades from Alumapanel and a 5 pack of blades comes with 3 springs. I generaly change the spring every other blade change.

    More often than not you have to ask for them.

    Here's what I did when I dropped mine:

    Take a vehicle magnet hold it right next to the floor where you think it fell - move it around a bit and wham there it is.

    Good luck

    i would think you could find one at a sewing machine repair shop or a automotive parts place .. around here we have american high performance parts .. and that string looks like a carburator spring might work .. if you lived close to me i would say come over and we can go through my ammo cans of small nuts bolts and springs .. maybe a retractable pen spring might work

    I can mail you a free recycled one if you can wait. Otherwise I would just go for the $35 and you will have the spring plus a sweet new blade!
