Thanks fo sending me 2 springs i recently ordered. The application was as a replacement spring for an airguns rear sight. The elevation mechanism is a hinged assembly supported by an elevation screw and spring damping. The springs are easy to lose !
Two springs of different length enabled me to optimise as i no longer had original spring.
Hello. Thanks for the items which I received today. I will be leaving you positive feedback as you provide a great service. On your leaflet you asked what I am using the springs for. Well, they will be used in the landing gear for my remote control aircraft. The springs will act as the shock absorbers that fit inside the legs of the landing gear.
Springs arrived today no problem.
Just letting you know what I'm using them for, just bought a Milltek Stainless steel exhaust for my Toyota GT86, the springs are to go on the bolts that connect the mid pipe to front pipe.
Just to help keep som tension on the nuts.
Hi Nick, just received the spring. It's for the catch on a dyson vacume (DC07) collector tub. The little catch on the top that's pulled up to release the flap down bottom to empty the container. The Stainless spring is the return for the catch, which if it fails enables the flap to drop open as soon as the tub is removed from the cleaner, muck everywhere. I normally wash and rinse the tub and internals once a month as it's a dust and pong trap. Not realising that the return for the catch would be slowly rusting away (normal steel spring). Now replaced and works better than ever. Far cheaper than replacing the entire bucket and catch mechanism too.
:o) Many thanks. Richard
Hi, you wanted to know what the spring was for. 🙂 I am doing a conversion on an old sewing machine adding two additional thread tensioners. The spring is for that, and I'm using screw caps for disks. Note that it wouldn't work in standard tensioners because they have conical springs, a.k.a. "hive". So I'm just tinkering. 🙂
Many thanks for the super quick delivery of the springs.
I am trying alternative throttle return springs on my 1989 Moto Guzzi LeMans to try to aleviate the heavy throttle action of these machines. The carburettor manufacturers do not supply different rated springs so it is all a bit trial and error.
As requested, info on use of the spring I ordered.
Bought a hydraulic door closer as I was sick of grandkids slamming the back door. It was far too stiff so I dismantled it and fitted a lighter spring. Perfect - although it took me 2 goes to get the right weight...
Springs arrived fine and do the job perfectly.
I only needed one spring but thought it prudent to buy a few spares.
This is to replace a damaged spring in the glove box opening mechanism on my XKR, I'm sure Jaguar would want to sell me half a car to get this spring, so well worth the hunt to find you.
Thanks and regards
