    My first thought was the slide latch spring on a High Standard
    Supermatic Citation. It is just about that size. (never measured it)

      You've missed them somewhere in Brownell's. Their online search engine is horrid, but they carry them. Also, find someone who smokes. I think the BIC lighter flint spring is close to that. One of the BIC springs is about 1/8". The other is smaller. Yeah, I never throw away a spring or something with one in it.

        The print head in an old dot matrix printer has springs in it about that size. Some more modern printers have springs about that size in the paper control path-I've seen them holding those little rollers. They might be a little long, but that's a lot easier to deal with than too large a diameter.

        Sounds like you have found a source, and at least that is repeatable.
        I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-
