Question

Joncon


I have an older bilco cellar door that uses old style torsion bar springs for easy lift. The springs have rusted out and are broken.
These springs are no longer made or available from the manufacturer.
My only choice is having something made up . A diy idea could be very helpful. Please advise.

Post up a picture of the spring.

Have you tried Grainger or McMaster Carr?
