Lock Assembly

I had to get a new frizzen screw for my Lyman lock and now I need to put it back together. So my question is, what would be the best way to compress the frizzen spring to avoid bending the new screw? Thanks in advance...

Re: Lock Assembly

I use vice grips. Just tight enough to compress the spring so you can work with it.

You bet. Something between the vise grips.

Re: Lock Assembly

The round rubber gripper to open jars works good not to mark the spring.Compress lightly with a vice grip.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!
