A Spring-Smith is the Person who Puts The Force of Resilience into the Pre-Formed-Spring-Shape :
By Heating It; and Cooling It Very Slowly:
In a very-care-fully-controlled-manner.

THIS TRADITIONAL METHOD INCLUDES A HIGH FIRE RISK.
It Should Only Ever Be Attempted Out-Doors, By Professionals, who have Good Fire-Fighting equipment nearby, and the skills to use it Safely.
