RL 1000 Springs

I need the main springs for this press. My local old fashioned hardware store sells a spring that's close, but doesn't last long enough before breaking. This is the main spring(2) that return the press arm after cycling. I can load without them, but it's much nicer to have them.

Has anyone found a good replacement that's easily available? I have 3 RL 1000's that my brother and I use regularly.

Thanks,
Mark

Wow, no responses at all. I knew those machines were old, but hoped there were others out there running them.

RE: RL 1000 Springs

I just got an RL1000 from a friend. I am also looking for the balance springs. In an email reply from Dillon, the tech said stock equivalent springs can be found at Ace Hardware. There is no Ace in my town so I haven't checked yet.
