I got tired of rooting around on the floor looking for
springs and spring seats when trying to change out
revolver hammer springs. One day, I got the idea to
make a tool to ease the task. It cost nothing since
scrap aluminum, nuts, bolts, washers were in the parts
bin. It took about 20 minutes to put together and it
works. Just put the spring arm in the clamp, tighten
it up to remove the pin (or paper clip), then loosen
it slowly with little chance of the spring going
ballistic. Reverse the process to put in the new
spring. I have used it on Taurus 85 and 905 as well as
Ruger SP101. (Hopefully you can see the attached
photo... not sure how well this site works for that.
If you can't, let me know and I can email it to you.)
