This remarkable tool was launched in the late 1940's by a Zurich based company called Vertechap AG of which our research reveals very little.
Tension springs, compression springs or electrical coils of any length or inside diameter can be quickly and simply made from wire up to around Ø3/32" (2.5mm). The wire is fed through the handle to ensure safety and wire tension can be adjusted both before and, if required, during the operation. The distance between adjacent coils can be set on the integral dividing disc. The results are thoroughly impressive!
The original design has been redrawn to our solid model CAD system and the kit includes all necessary bar stock (Aluminium, Steel and UHMWP Plastic) a long series drill to complete the guide hole and a starter pack of around 20ft (6m) of music wire in different gauges.
Why put up with springs that are 'sort-of' the right fit or provide 'sort-of' the right force?
