I noticed after priming that the spring perches have deteriorated a bit. The picture shows a gap between the perch and a strait edge. This could possibly allow movement of the spring relative to the axle in this area which is undesirable. My first thought was to somehow cut the surface flat.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

I decided welding on a new surface is a better idea.

I still must grind the corners and slope the edges a bit to reduce the chance of cutting into the springs.
