I have always hated trying to find the right spring for the job in a hardware store, then having to pay up to 10 dollars for it. When I was learning to make chainmail I came up with this method for winding rings and realized it could be used for making springs as well. It is insane how quick and easy this is.
Video makes this easier to follow and shows just how ridiculously fast it is, so I included a podcast with me doing this. A Drill, one with a little bit of torque. Heavy duty gloves, not gardening gloves. If you try this with light duty gloves, call an ambulance before you start so it will arrive in time to stop the bleeding.
An arbor- just a fancy name for a rod to wind the spring on, round is common but not required. Match the arbor to the diameter of the spring you want to make. More on this in a minute. 32″ stainless steel tig rods for welding sitting around. Each rod only costs a few cents and they seem very suited for doing this kind of hand bending. Expansion springs are ones that stretch, like a spring in a screen door or a gate.
