Your 5/64" (five sixty-fourths) compression spring's measurements and dimensions have a lo to do with your standard compression spring's force. For this reason, it is very important that the compression spring's measurements are precise. Changing the wire diameter by even 0.001" can make a great difference on how strong your spring will be and how much it will be able to travel; especially with a spring as small as a 5/64" outer diameter compression spring.
The 5/64" (five sixty-fourths) outer diameter standard compression springs provided here offer customers a wide variation of rate, load, and travel capacities. Every spring has its own amount of force due to the different physical dimensions; like wire diameter or total coils. The force chart to the right will explain what adjustments will make your spring stronger (more force) or weaker (less force).
For more force, you must either decrease your compression spring's outer diameter, increase the wire diameter, take some coils out, or make the free length longer so you obtain more force through more travel. For less force, you must increase the outer diameter, decrease the wire diameter, add coils, or make the free length of your spring shorter so that you obtain less force through less travel.
These stock 5/64" (five sixty-fourths) outer diameter compression springs are made out of either 302 stainless steel (ASTM A 313) or music wire (ASTM A 228). Music wire may sometimes be plated in a zinc finish. Other plating options like black oxide and gold irradiate are available on larger standard compression spring sizes.
