Some of the label printers also do wire labels now too, may be an option.

Princess Auto here had anvils for sale a while back, not sure if it’s still the case. Seem to recall they were maybe from Turkey? Somewhere over in that part of the world anyway.

That is so they ‘know’ the springs are matched and in pairs. If the current springs have a damaged or oversprung leaf, they won’t match from side to side.

I’ve had a couple friends run aftermarket installed airbags. The one just uses a 12v compressor from his ciggy lighter socket to inflate as needed. Not like they are big volume.

Instead of a roller rest, you should set up a rest with either a bearing, or a steady rest sort of setup. Something that will contain the shaft and bolt to the floor.
