Friction folder

Recommended Posts

I have been trying different ideas on how to make a friction folder with only two pieces of steel and a pin

this is my latest attempt 

12” of garage door spring and a piece of file

Very nice, I don't think I could pull off those scrolls, but I'll have to try something similar when I refill my propane.


Some garage door springs are hollow with nylon or some kind of cord running through them so they don't fly apart when they break, I don't know how common that is but I saw a few like that when researching springs. 


Did you do much planning before you started working on it? It looks very neatly done.
