Nice job on all the work
I used one spring because I'm a tightwad. And yeah, it actually works pretty well. I bet it is equal to lifting a large bag of dog food. It is a 160lb spring. I'm not sure of the length or anything else.

I may try a rope instead of the spring. The cable was nothing but a PITA.

I also might add a second spring, but it will be the last thing I do. Other stuff is ahead of it on the to do list.
I'm not a Miracle Worker, if it looks like crap now, it will look like crap with stripes when I am done.
