great thread and some nice tools mentioned but got maybe a stupid question, to me it isn't at least and it's on the tang part mention. in picture it's mentioned it's broken off but is this part replaceable and if so does it clip in the cage somehow once the spring is rewound? idk, never had one of these things apart and not sure how this mechanism connects together once rewound. btw-apologies to ya ed for jumping in your thread about this, was really wondering bout this, thanks

I just use pulley that's on trimmer I'm fixing and wind pulley with spring in a cupped hand spring dangling. Gets it tight then turn over still holding everything and grab spring with needle nose vise grips. I ain't strong like piston slapper and the others.
