Replacing PEI sheet on smooth spring steel sheet

Are replacement PEI sheets available for the MINI/MINI+?

I've collected some pits in the PEI sheet (not enough glue when printing FLEX; way too much adhesion with ABS; etc.).  There appear to be replacement PEI sheets for other Prusa printers, but not the MINI/MINI+.

Hi Sanslos
If I were not in the UK 
I could buy them off the Prusa Site

Search under Spring Sheet, or look in the accessories section (Even though it says Mk3....     I expect the etc, covers the Mini)

Regards Joan

Howdy @joantabb

Those are the actual spring steel sheets.  What I was looking for is just to remove and replace the PEI itself, like with this:

No I don't see Mini Sized PEI Sheets, only Mk2 and Mk2.5/mk3 sized sheets. 

You could cut either if these to fit the mini... 

Similarly I couldn't find any PEI Replacement instructions for the mini, but the Mk2.5 / mk3 instructions should work

I was thinking about getting the larger sheets and cutting them down, if that's what was available.  The process is fairly involved, it could be that I just decide that buying a new PEI covered steel sheet is a better approach all around 😊 The reason I haven't done that is that the steel sheet is still useful, it seems a waste.

Thanks for the information!
