    Hi, I am new here, just stumbled on to the site and was very impressed with the level of information given.

    I am about to make a component using 0.5mm thick spring steel, the shape is very similar to a bulldog clip for keeping documents together, though very much longer, I have a couple of questions,

    1. what is rule for allowing spring back,

    2. would it be possible to use a material that is tempered or would I get away with an annealed stock.

    I would greatly appreciate any help and feed back in this area.
