Strange, but I was packing up my BJr after open mic and I noticed
that the power tubes were a bit crooked and one spring that holds the tube restraint was missing. Don't know how long it was missing.
If it popped off, I thought it would end up in the cabinet. I searched all around, and it is not there. I thought that it might be stuck to a magnet, or got into the speaker.

I guess I need to order some springs. I did some searching, but not much came up. Any suggestions for a supplier?

Try amplified parts - link at the top of the page. You’ll probably have to order the whole retainer.

Measure one of the remaining springs and post here. If I have one laying around I’ll mail it to you.

Results not typical.

Do not try this at home.

You can use two springs from a click pen to attach an EL84 ‘halo’ tube retainer.

I found the springs on the Guitar Parts Factory site.

I needed some other stuff, so I went for it!

Funny, I checked my other BJr, and the spring was missing as well!

In this case it stuck to the side of the speaker magnet.

I still may find the other lost spring on the floor of the bar where I jam. One advantage of a divey bar is that they don't sweep up too often. Makes it erasier to find lost hardware :-).

Have you felt around inside the speaker basket? It might be in there.

Thanks Leftee-

Yes, I searched and searched in my usual obsessive way.
