Lowes home-made mbc

Looking to build a boost controller.
I remember reading about Lowes ball-bearing & spring setup somewhere, but I can't seem to find the instructions anymore.
:shrug:

Also, does anyone know of a better home-made controller out there?
I could buy one, but call me strange but I like building stuff myself.

I had problems finding a good spring to use. I eventually found a perfect size spring from an old door knob mechanism. Caustion: I haven't installed mine yet, so I can't say for sure that it works.

From a ballpoint pen or you can get one from a bicycle shop.

A ball point pen spring looks extremely flimsy compared to the spring I found. I didn't feel comfortable installing that.
