Philip: I assume you plan to make your own tool. I did this, first sawing a slot that fit the upper bridge of the coils I was working on. Later when I encountered the thicker bridge types, I made the wider slot in the opposite end of the tool. I used a hand hacksaw, about one and one-half blade thicknesses for the slot. I don't have an actual measurement, just slightly more than bridge thickness. The depth of the slot is important too, the tool needs to contact the back end of the cushion spring, and I found that by trial and error. good luck, jb
