look like a reverse flow in the making.
engine valve springs make great never gets hot handles.
triple roller chain does good for hinges...
I have not built or done any fab work for many years, but always used whatever I could find at the scrap metal yard..
Don't count every day, Make every day Count
Good Cue to ya..
