Thanks everyone,
I’m realizing that I will have to transfer the precoiled springs to a winder, in order to improve my success rate.

New springs are supposed to be pre-oiled, but I’ve used both Bob’s method and the one where you put a line of oil across the wound spring ( once in the barrel ) at 120 degree intervals.
I don’t trust the factory oil I guess !

Steve, I do not belong to a chapter yet,..but I need to do so.

David,
I did watch the second half !

Again,

Thanks everyone !
