Hawksley powder flask spring needed
#1
Hi all, trying to locate a replacement spring for my old original Hawksley flask. It's a big 'un- top flange 1 7/16" diam approx., bottom flange 1 11/16" diam approx., gap between 3/32" approx.
From photos of similar on the net, it appears the flat spring sits on the bottom flange and around the top flange, but not sure if this is the correct fitment or it should sit between flanges?
Can anyone suggest a source or by chance has got one kicking about?? (Kranks only seem to do small ones) many thanks

You could try Peter Dyson & Sons Ltd.    Peter or Wendy might be able to help you.
Good luck.

Thanks both. Have checked out peter Dyson, from their website it looks like £45 to make and fit a spring, and you need to send them the top. Not sure if my flask is worth that expense......

Yes, you think what it must cost in time.  Especially when the £45 includes 20% VAT and other taxes.
