Coil Problem

The worst part of a Slinky is when it gets twisted together. Once the coils get intertwined, I would much rather throw it away than try to get it untwisted. And in the rare case when it does come unstuck, the Slinky is never the same. There’s always a noticeable gap where the metal got bent and can never be put back to its original shape.

So you can imagine my disappointment when I ordered two coil springs for my Jeep and opened the box to find this:

I was glad that it wasn’t as bad as it looked. Just a slight tug and they came apart.

and two chains of pure gold; you shall make them of twisted cordage work, and you shall put the corded chains on the filigree settings.

    Not usually a thing you want to hear about car parts: “Just a slight tug and they came apart.”
