          John, You re better off replacing the mainspring with .010 steel stock - or if you can stainless steel stock. If the key is non-Vibroplex (Bunnell or Lionel)

            John,

            You're better off replacing the mainspring with .010 steel stock - or
            if you can stainless steel stock. If the key is non-Vibroplex
            (Bunnell or Lionel) sometimes the pendulum didn't have markings on the
            side. This is the most difficult part to get of the Lightning
            Bug/Champion/Zephyr type of keys. If you do manage to find one,
            bravo! But I would fix the one you have - one reason is that if you
            get a "spare" - it might have been discarded because it was a poor
            sending main spring. You're better off fixing the mainspring.

            OK David, many thanks for the advice. Thing is - the pendulum arm is missing (the part with 1 to 0 numbers on it) so I cannot fit a replacement spring ! I am

              I am hoping someone has a complete main arm, or perhaps a junk key with
              a complete main arm.
