    Grafmatic 45 broken spring

    On the Grafmatic 45 on the cover assembly 317731G2, the 31773 Spring - Drawer snapped next to the rivet. Can the be repaired by gluing with Super Glue or Gorilla Glue? Any idea where I can get replacement springs?

    I've got a few assorted Grafmatic parts. Can you post a picture of the spring? I may have them.

    Good luck, I tried once to get replacement parts by buying the cheapest beaten-up Grafmatics I could find.

    Turned out they worked fine.

    Sorry, I've got coil springs & cat whisker springs, but not that one. A model airplane & train hobby shop may have small sheets of brass or steel you could make one from.

    Or perhaps try a clockmaker.
