    Spring forming GIF

    There is a fairly well-known category of GIFs known as "mechanical GIFs" or "machine GIFs". Pretty self-explanatory, and I like to feature them here.

    But nestled within that category is a subcategory of Spring Forming GIFs. There are more ways to form a spring than I had imagined, and they are all satisfying to watch. Turns out this our third such spring forming GIF, and I still have a couple of nice ones in my Tool Talk folder to post.

    How many springs one may ask. Well, ever seen a semi-trailer loaded with wire coils? .060 steel is around 103' per pound...Spring forming GIF-wire.jpg
