Update - Found it:

Does this look like it will work (often the strand that connects across the bottom is diagonal, this one is straight)?
That's the one. I think you can order just the springs if you don't need the other parts. I'm thinking of shortening the spring a coil or two so it's not completely compressed. I'll post a picture so you can see what I mean.

Also, if you like, I can add your battery holder to my Shapeways shop.

That would be great (I've bought a few things from there!) I like the idea of HP parts in as few places as possible, and I'm unlikely to make any of my own. Just provide a reference to the original author, Chris Osborn (aka "FozzTexx") and the Creative Commons license (I'm going to add those details soon if I leave this up for a while).

Give it a try with black tea, test it before to see if the color meets your mood Wink

btw, do you recommend AA alkaline or Enerloop AA rechargeables?


Ka-ching! Now I can frame and display on the wall my first non-existent dollar bill from my first no-markup sale!

I'd go with the rechargeable batteries. Alkalines may last a little longer, but we're talking battery life of only a few hours. That'd get pretty expensive if you're buying a pair every day or two. A big plus with the Eneloop (or Amazon Basics-labeled version) is the low discharge characteristic. Holds a charge for many months without trickling away...
