    That is a nice spring making tool. And it can handle several different diameters! I need two or three of them for smaller and larger ones.

    One thing I may do different would be to braze the nuts together instead of welding. It would be a lot neater that way.

    I am wondering if a "three ball" crank could be made this way, with nuts and bolts.

    Just about any wire could in theory be used to make springs as long as it had a high enough tensile to retain its shape.
    Brass even plastic has been used in delicate instruments where not a whole lot of load requirement is on the springs.
    But in general, a high carbon high tensile steel or stainless is used. I've used piano wire of different sizes many times
