[BKARTS] Springback Binding

Hi, All.
I've been working on a bunch of old springback bindings and have posted a few photos at
We were able to use original springs when still present but needed new springs for some. We were able to capture the right arcs by using heavy cardboard tubes, a table saw, belt sander, etc. I recall the Bone Folder featuring an article on a very lightweight spring (cardstock) and watched Karen Hanmer demonstrate this in her studio for the Chicago Hand Bookbinders. These are quite massive (1/4" to 3/8" thick) and very sturdy.
