As requested by fellow Melodica World Participant “Shannon” on this forum, I put a short video together of the jig I made to make small stainless steel springs. The jig in principal can be made for larger or smaller springs. This jig was design for use with a small lathe but can be used with a small drill press on low speed as well. Also this works for making compression or tension springs. I made this one specifically to make compression springs for the Diamanté Wind Vox keys front spring, but can be used to make the rear spring as well. There are several other videos on You Tube on how to make springs as well that are very helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions that I may be able to answer.
