Hi All,

Does anybody know a supplier of 10 SWG x 3/8" spring steel strip. It's for the springs on my 5" gauge tender Reeves do it but only one inch wide ?

Hi Peter,

Are you sure that you need 10swg? That's ~1/8". Much thicker than the 5" g. tender that I'm building.

I know it sounds obvious, but have you tried the likes of "Springmasters".

Satirical humour on the forum - I like it!

A while back I recovered  around 9ft of spring steel [0.012" x 3/8" ] from the

Mains Cable Retract mechanism of a Lidl Hair dryer that died !
