To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this set because I lost a tiny spring for my Mechanical Toy Camera. I replaced all the springs it gave with the Neiko steel springs. It's a lot better and more sturdy, makes my toy camera feel more premium.
I needed some springs to make a DIY fix in my kitchen. I bought recessed lighting fixtures that came with their own springs. However, those springs were either too long or didn’t support the weight of the fixtures. Ergo, I needed springs.
I purchased this box because, hey, who couldn’t use a bunch of different springs? You never know. I found plenty of tiny springs with enough tension to do the job. They were coiled at each end so I did have to snip them to fit my application.
If you’re looking for hooked springs, this box doesn’t have them. It does have a wide variety of springs, just not exactly everything one might need. For the price, you can make just about anything work.
Other than that, the only downside is the box is a bit flimsy. And if you happen to open it and the dividers fall out, you’ll be spending a lot of time putting it all back together. So use with caution.
I give this product three stars because I’ll more than likely look elsewhere when I need another box of springs, but again for the price, it’s not a bad deal.
Was disappointed in the quality of the springs, but handy to have for quick fixes or custom projects. If you want to get a longer lasting, better quality spring, order types sold by gunsmith outfits, like Brownells - plan on spending more.
