Wanted books/pdf's and data on springs

  1. Aug 16, 2014 #1
    I want to do some prototype work that may need some springs. they are long springs I will need to find cheep part so I may need to know how to make them as well. The end use would be long large and springs and work around 2200 lbs. I can't give to much more then that some people will think its homework and flag me again. If you know of free software I can get that would be nice as well.

    “Machinery's Handbook” by Oberg, has a very good introductory section on springs.

    There are pdf copies of previous editions on the web.
    New and second hand copies are available, find them via www.bookfinder.com
