Garage Door Torsion Spring

Recommended Posts

This isn't really blade-related, but the torsion spring on my garage door broke, and I was wondering if anyone had ideas on what I could do with it beyond making flint strikers? I wouldn't use it for knives since it's probably full of microcracks, but it seems a waste to just throw it away.

Gravers, punches, etc.

Yes gravers to use on mild or unhanded steel, punches for chasing and repousse work.   Very small drifts if you want.  Corkscrews,  scratch awls, bottle openers,  burnishers, other small springs for whatever your heart desires.
