Hey Chris, sorry, I was going to respond earlier but got sidetracked and I forgot. the power of a click to hold mainsprings comes from the design if the click how it mates up with the click wheel and the point at where it pivots, this is true with all clicks in clocks and watches, the force between a click and the click wheel should draw them tighten together even without a spring. the springs function is just to keep the click in the proper area. The guys have given some great ideas if you do not have access to supplies, you could even refashion a part from a old watch. I have used a grinding wheel in the lathe, thickness can be lapped or ground down on a oil stone down to what you need. do you still have the pieces??? they can be used as a template. hope all is well, William
