Re: Recoil Spring Tool

I've rewound a few in my time. Frustrating to say the least. Sometimes wished I had a couple more hands?

The more recent ones I've rewound were Homelite, Stihl, & Husqvarna. There really wasn't any difference in the way they were made. I've gotten pretty good at it in spite of arthritis in my fingers. The biggest thing for me has been understanding just how the spring fastens at each end and particularly the spring to pulley connection.

Figuring out a simple way to get the cord wound on the pulley is as big a challenge as the spring itself.

Choosing a double braid Dacron polyester cord that is just big enough to not pull through itself in the pulley yet give you enough wraps is just as important as the other factors.

Doing it a lot helps . . . . .
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
