This is the last of the “Reel 37” drawings.
A drill point dimple helps to distinguish the pawl pin from the two spring pins.
The spring is easily bent with round nose pliers.
Nice drawings. Just a simple question. What kind of wire do you use to make the springs? It’s some heat treating involved? Thanks!.
McMaster-Carr describes it as “Spring-Back type 304 stainless steel – bright finish”. See, for example, their part number 8908K28. Conveniently, it comes in 1 foot straight pieces. It is already at spring temper and needs no heat treat, but you can still bend it with pliers.
