The movement says Waterbury co. 6 1/2 inch. any idea where to get one that is already preshaped? or do i have to make one ?...the spring is 1/4" wide and about 1 5/8" long, not to sure about the thickness though. Overall lenght of the spring and rod is 6 1/2"...thanks john

    You will have to make one from a commonalty available blank. .003" spring thickness is good. The spring part may need to be trimmed too. Longer is OK as long as the crutch loop is about 1/4" onto the rod part.
