    Default spring help

    For my suomi build I needed to make a small torsion spring which I did out of music wire and it turned out great. My question is heat treating. All I could find on heat treating was to heat the spring to 500 degrees for an hour to stress relieve it. Is that it or am I missing a step?

    MNusic wire is already a spring temper, no further treating needed.

    Thats Kernel, I'll make a couple more just in case this one breaks down the road.
