diameter springs, but they are all the compressed type. None (except
one very large spring) have lengthwise space in between the coils.
Will a spring work reliably if it is stretched so that it can then
function as a compressible spring?
Or should I just look for another source of springs?
I'm looking for small springs somewhere around 5/8" in diameter that
can be compressed like shock absorber springs.
For what it's worth.
The application is for rollerski poles. The spring will be attached
somehow to the lower and upper segments of the shaft, maybe using
hose clamps if they are strong enough, for a nice neat
modular/flexible first design.
