Spriso

Linda asks if 1600 and 2000 springs are the same??

  1. 5 has the lowest rate. (thinner wire, less coils)
  2. 4 and 3 have almost identical rates. (same wire diameter, same # of coils)
  3. 2 looks to have the same wire diameter, but a bit less coils (but only by 3/4 or so)
  4. 1 looks to have the thickest wire diameter and the most coils. (highest rate)

that is a bit simplified.

1600 and 2000 springs were the same.
