    As for round-nosed pliers: I use the EREM 543, made in Switerland and expensive to buy, I had mine for over 25 years now and still good.

    It is possible to remove the temper first, form the spring, and then re-temper it.

    It's not easy, but sometimes it's easier than getting tempered spring steel to take the shape you want it to!

    What John Koehrer said.

    I bought this from Lee Valley in Canada.Not only does it find & pick up those wee bits lost on my shop floor but I have retrieved tiny screws etc. from my camera work area.

    Is it anything like the spring in a floppy disk?

    The idea looks good, but whitch spring is missing....... there are quite a few in a shutter..........
    Otherwise Hamster needs to wait for 3 month until I am home in The Netherlands again, I am in Brazil right now and have no other parts with
    me than a couple of verry little screws.....

    One other thing to considder: the new spring must exersize more or less the same tension as the old one.
    (fogive me my english.....)
    Too stiff and you are into trouble, too weak and nothing happens......
