Hi All.   I have recently purchased an “Auto Centre Punch” , sometimes it works, but not always?According to Google l have to “ Dismantle it, bend the spring and reassemble” and then it will be okay .
I have done this and it worked, a few times, now it doesn’t . Can  anyone please advise me?  Kevin

If it is the flat sort of spring, about 1/2" long, it has probably lost its temper [I do quite often]. Without absolute certainty, I think curving it to the right profile, then heating to dull red, allowing to cool for a few seconds then dropping in car type oil should harden it. You'll know if you have over hardened it, as it will snap and be totally useless thereafter.....
