Great stuff thanks. I remember` making replacement TLD springs a long time ago.

I used mono SS trace wire and it works very well.

Thank you very much for showing this technique.  The spring material I need is .021, and I have the taps and handle.

Music wire and spring steel are the same thing.  Im not so sure about leader wire, but I suspect it doesnt have the same tight quality control over hardness and "springy-ness" as real spring wire. 

I use the stainless spring wire found here.

Id be happy to send you some of what I have, the roll would last me a few lifetimes at the rate I use it.

Excellent Triple 7!

I need to make a very small sping and will scale down the needed tools and give it a go.

Already have a lifetime supply of 4 different diameters of SS Spring  wire that I use in another hobby.

While servicing a CS 501 last night, the spring vanished on me.  Not having any wire, just wondering if I can use a pen spring and just re-wrap it to make it smaller and if it will work enough to be trusted temporarily.

Not really sure of the size you need, but if it's smaller than pen spring you may want to tear apart a Bic lighter Huh?
Swear I read about that somewhere before on here...or maybe I was just dreaming Grin
