Came across this little tip on the Stewmac website. This might be an old idea for some of you but its the first time I've come across it and thought I'd share it here. I plan to try it out on my next build.

Phil - Do you have any suggestions as to where I can get spring steel pieces like the ones you use? - Ed

I haven't actually tried this method out yet, although I plane to after seeing it. I haven't gotten around to finding some myself.

McMaster-Carr carries it.

http://www.mcmaster.com/#blue-spring-steel/=tpwvhv

If the link doesn't take you to the spring steel page, just do a search on "blue spring steel" on their web site. You want the 1095 blue spring steel.

Here's another place that carries it: http://03508e2.netsolstores.com/BlueTemperedSpringSteelshimStock.aspx

Hope this helps.

Ed
