Hey, does anyone know where to get a replacement spring for an ezstruder?

Probably not much help but some local hardware stores in my area have drawers full of springs. If the one you have isn't damaged too badly just take it with you and look for a replacement.

I've looked around for one, but haven't been able to find one that's the same size and tension :|

Get a bunch for pretty cheap. There is one in there that fits relatively the same as the regular with about the same tension. I've used them a lot. A crap load of springs come in handy.

Mike, you rock. You're a regular Rockasaurus Rex. And actually the extruder that this will be going into is a version of your ezflex, modified to work with a planetary geared motor. ^_^

Share? Shaaaaa-aaaare...what is this word? :D I wanted to give it a solid burn in test before I posted it, so last night I ran a 12 hour print on it, successfully! .3mm layer height, .4 nozzle, 80mm/s with PLA...it moves plastic like a beast. I'll see about making a youmagine account so I can reference your original design.
