Google "buy springs". You can find ANY size and strength you need.

problem is, i live in norway. not much(if any) DIY community here.
My local Sears Hardware has a section with many, many types of springs (expansion/contraction, weak to really strong, with way to many sizes to try to describe). Couldn't hurt to give a look if you have one nearby.

If you are looking for a small spring the spring from a pen works great. I have used it for a smaller spring in a paintball gun.

You'll find them if you look hard enough. This is why we salvage parts from everything. Throw away nothing.

Generally you will find that multi strands of elastic (bungy strap) will be lighter and stronger than springs unless they are specially made for the task.
