Wanted - APT Spring Clip
« on: February 01, 2023, 09:33:23 AM »
Can anyone supply the APT spring clip found in the base of a 4MV Qjet?

It is part "B" in the image.

Used is expected, just need one in good shape and with original profile.  The clip is formed from square-profile wire.

Thanks,

Mike

Guess they are scarce!

Mine is worn or corroded about half-through the bottom leg but still functional.  It is sticking above the base a little, left a witness mark in the gasket.

I guess I'll try forming something close out of music wire.

You can see my old spring is almost worn through from rubbing against the adjuster screw.  It was also deformed from the wrestling match to remove it a few years back.

I was able to bend something close to the right shape from 0.050" music wire.

It seems to fit OK and I think it will work.
