coil spring for pneumatic stapler

A professional from Gray,Maine 04039 says:
I am having dificulty obtaining a "feeder/roller/ribbon/constant force spring" used on an industrial(hitachi) pneumatic stapler. Your Series 180 3# spring appears to be very similar the force level and width are good. My questions are 1, what is the diameter of the spring at rest? 2,how long is the spring when extended? 3,and is there any place near Gray,Maine that I can purchase one or two?? Thank you! Carl

The coil balance springs available on SWISCO's Web site are made only for windows. SWISCO cannot recommend any other use of these sash support window springs. These window springs are available for purchase directly on this Web site and you can order a quantity as small as one.

The length of the spring is 40 inches. The diameter dimensions can be seen in the included image in this post. The outside diameter is 1-1/16" and the inside diameter is 3/4"

OK Paul, Thanks again,for your time and information. However it is too large for my application,I was hoping for something about 13/16" OD with a 5/8"ID and a length of about 24". Have a great day,Carl
