    Once again looks like a lathe could be helpful! :whistle:

    I need a return/compression spring for my bottle jack

    65mm total length, 23mm ID & at least 2mm wire.

    Any way I could make one at home without a lathe? Maybe use a drill possibly without loosing my eyes!

    If not willing to pay someone if reasonable, Looked on eBay, But struggling

    Many Thanks

    Does this look like an accident waiting to happen?

    I tried making a spring with piano wire on my lathe and it was not as easy or neat as in the video on YouTube. I ended up getting it made by a local firm it was really cheap £2 each. I can give you there number if you want but there based in Newcastle .
