TRAP SPRINGS, RE-TEMPERING


TRAP SPRINGS, RE-TEMPERINGóWill someone give a formula for re-tempering trap springs, or some method of strengthening weak springs?

There is no method of tempering which could be used successfully by the average trapper, in fact, tempering steel is an art and comparatively few mechanics or black smiths can give an even and uniform temper. It is a matter of chance with the most of them. Blacksmith shops, as a rule, are not fitted for tempering, for the springs cannot possibly be given a uniform heating at the forge. I would advise the purchase of new springs. Sometimes a weak spring may be materially stiffened by hanging the trap on an inch bar of iron, the bar being thrust through the bow of the spring and supported at each end and striking a good sharp blow on the end of the spring with a hammer. This will give the spring more spread and greater strength. Of course, there is some danger of breaking the spring but a poor spring is better broken.
