    Poll available for those who feel the pain.

    Related: when I give up looking and order a new one, what is the correct number of spares to order?

    PBR sells a handy package of music wire for replacing bits like that.

    Edit: It's a whopping two bucks on the "Toolbox" page.

    You should consider getting some spinner washers while you’re at it.

    Haha, I had that fiasco too, because the replacement spinner I ordered has thinner wire than the one that broke!
