Completed my spring compressor

Between the bottom disc and the coil is in my situation the lower a arm.

This pic. shows the treathed rod, its 3/4 thick high strength stainless steel.
The nut with rounded side is a sliding one, then there are two bearings with discs, and at last a 1 1/4'' x 2.5'' spanner nut.

This is the disc that goes inside the coil (top) with a hex locking system and a slot to put it around the rod.
The discs are two plates of 5/16'' welded together (a smaller inside so it cant slide out of the coil.
Total thicknes of disc 5/8''

Well the compressor works very well, and gives some piece of mint.

Was a day of work well spent.
