I don’t see the picture you refer to.I do have brass shim stock or 1/4 copper pipe with caps and lots of metal shavings. So if I made the spring and put the pipe with metal shavings. Heated it. (how Hot?) then dunked it in oil to cool (used motor oil?) Or would be better to fold the spring in .01″ brass shim stock with some metal shavings and go that way? Thanks for the help.
