But you should see the spring he's using though. It's huge.

Well, that would be ideal, but there are no pictures.

That spring is huge... I would suggest using aluminum, probably the 1/2" OD pipe they sell at Home Depot would be good.

Probably from a pop-up lawn sprinkler. Some of them are very nice springs.

I don't believe that it is from a "pop-up" sprinkler considering that I found it in the middle of the street. I would guess a part from somewhere on a car or something.

What you are proposing would not be very secure, especially with the spring he's planning on using.


It's not hard to make things secure. JB Weld can hold pretty well on its own, considering it's made to adhere dissimilar metals. Any standoff would probably be steel anyway. I've had JB Weld holding brass to aluminum on my Angel Breech for quite some time now, and it hasn't budged at all. Sure, the spring is less than he probably wants to use, but brass is also horrible with adhesives.

If JB Weld failed, which I imagine it could with 30lbs of spring, there's still hardware to consider. Drill a hole through the rod and the standoff sideways, and JB Weld a smaller piece of Aluminum in there, or use a nut and bolt.

It's really not difficult, unless he thinks he's going to be able to use something with much more than 30lbs of spring.


Also, on an unrelated note to this issue, it could easily be a sprinkler spring. It's not crazy to say it fell out of a trash can (where a dead sprinkler head belongs) and onto the street during pickup.
