I know about dawkes music, but is anyone else selling springs suitable for NSP?

Thanks

Very few of the ready-made springs are suitable, mostly too thin.

I use 16SWG nickel silver wire , hammered out. This is easy and quick. Not sure where to get a small quantity, 2mm seems available eg from mallard metals. This is bigger than 16swg so harder work and more waste.
Maybe the dawkes springs would be easier for a one-off.
