How to Measure A Spring Wire Diameter

Another thing our team are always being asked is, how do you measure a spring wire diameter, there are two ways to measure a wire diameter of a spring.

Version 1 – No Wire Gauge

  1. Place your spring on the side.
  2. Locate the cut of the wire.
  3. Place your tape measure and place it on the end of the spring (missing out the wire cut)
  4. Count 10 wires in and measure the length.
  5. For example if it measures 75mm the wire diameter is 7.5.

Version 2 – Wire Gauge

  1. Get an Indupart wire gauge by clicking here this will measure from 4.5 to 11.5.
  2. Take one of the blades and place it onto the wire.
  3. Keep repeating this with other blades until you find the one that fits perfectly.
