You know those Soldering Gun stands that use a spring to hold the soldering gun in place?
I was wondering if those spring were applicable to nerf?

Well, they're extremely hard to compress and they're huge, so if you can find a gun that's reinforced to all hell, and has a ginourmus tube (cough cough *Angel's PAS* cough cough), then you might be able to use it.

Also, the only ones I've ever seen are cone shaped.

All that means is that the spring provides consistent pressure, instead of getting progressively harder to compress as you push it together.

I don't see why this wouldn't work in a gun that could handle it.

If at first you don't succeed, add more epoxy.

I don't think those coils were ever intended to be a "spring" of sorts. It's simply to keep you from burnin' mommy's kitchen table with yer iron. Or your hands, come to think of it.

Have you one of those stands? Maybe you should take it apart, take that coil, try it out, and report back how well it works in your blaster.

I think many of those stands have two springs: a conical outer spring, and a cylindrical inner spring. If you could somehow separate the two, the inner one would be the most viable for a nerf gun.

I work with soldering irons for a living. They will not work for what you want to attempt. They are not compression springs. There are a couple of models. The conical spring is the most common one. Its only purpose is to protect the user from accidental burns, though the spring does heat up a bit.

The cylindrical spring versions are less common as they do not dampen the heat from the iron at all.

A newer version has two springs, both a conical and a smaller cylindrical one within the conical. The cylindrical spring acts as a heat sink and absorbs a lot of te heat so that the outer spring stays relatively cool.

None of these springs will compress in any way to be used in a Nerf blaster. All you will be doing is destroying every blaster you use it in and throwing away your money.

True, they are coils, but the confusion comes from the fact that every descripton of the soldering stands calls them springs. Do an online search and you will see what I mean.
