Terry Tomlin, of the Hereford and Gloucester panels, has passed the following information about a source of springs which could be very useful to members. At the recent NAIDEX exhibition he came across the "Springmasters" stand.
This is a company specializing in the manufacture of springs of all kinds.
Of special interest to REMAP engineers is the fact that they –
a) Have a very wide range of standard springs.
b) Will supply singles or relatively small quantities ( minimum order £15, but if the desired spring is low value, the balance can be made up with "may be useful" springs.
c) Will make one-offs ( sheet metal springs can be laser cut, so no tooling required ) – typical minimum cost £ 30.
Springs are a specialist item which can be difficult ( though not impossible ! ) for Remap engineers to create.
He feels it would be worthwhile drawing members’ attention to the service which this company can provide.
They can be found at – www.springmasters.com. The contact on the stand was Carl Jackson.
