There is a guy on ebay uk remaking Spangles that fit!!!! Hooray.
Also can somebody tell me what size ball bearing I need for this machine and should it be hardened or stainless I was worried hardened might start to damage flicker. My bearing fell out and I discovered it is far from round, in fact think wheels on flintstones car.

You need 9/16 inch chromed ball. £3.50 with postage for one packet of spangles :shock:

Yeah he makes them in his kitchen. I bought 20 packs to fill my machine - cost a good bit less, about £1.50 each delivered. Still nice to put the right thing in the machine. Thanks for the ball info. Have to get stainless, don't think that should matter it's not hardened.
