 :thinking: There are a lot of blades there.

On my 5" Royal Scot  :-[ Locomotive  I found all bronze springs too strong and I had to make every other blade out of tufnol  ;).

Why not make them proper
Spring steel is the way to go you can buy it in the soft sate drill and form it as you like assemble with the clip harden out fully and let down to blue .

Just do not drop em when fully hard they are like glass

D. H sell it in coils the correct width and soft. ,usual disclaimer

Yes Doug Hewson (DH) does some really nice stuff but you get what you pay for: quality at a price  :-\

Nice coils of spring steel are also available from clock suppliers  ;)

Is the stuff from the clock supplies soft or tempered?
