Buescher Aristocrat

Hello, I'm new at this...so here goes. I have a Buescher aristocrat #285630 and a spring broke on the B pad. The spring is set in a brass threaded plug. I can't seem to find one...What do I do if my rubber band breaks too! Where can I find one of these gems? Thanks mtedesco@comcast.net

    The springs were called Norton springs and Buescher was the only one that use them as far as I know. A competent repairman should be able to either make a hole new spring or take the threaded plug out and put in a new spring. If you can't find anyone locally to do it send me the threaded plug and I will put a new spring in it for you.
