Getting the Most out of Springs

Thorp in The Manual of Woodwind Repair makes the following points.

Springs should curve gently like a the shape of a feather (My image).

The spring should be bent a little further than you might think necessary as it is fairly easy to bend it back a little if necessary when the horn is put together.

Add a drop of oil to the cradle

Spring can be burnished to revive them.
