I've been working on my Webster engine(more webster goodness) . I got thinking about the springs. Looked at McMaster Carr, some were close. Then I decided why not make my own. Ordered music wire from McMaster Carr. Tried making a couple of springs. Not so easy without a fixture. So here is my first attempt. A couple of more attempts, but same results. So I searched the MEB magazine index. In issue 19 there is a Spring Winder by Dario Brisighella, Sr. So I ordered some 1.250 square aluminum bar. When the aluminum came I started on the fixture. First thing was get the dimensions of 1.25 x 1.0. So I took my face mill and cut one side down to 1.0"
