A Small Engine's Recoil Tool could be worth the money At the address below) or build your specific with PVC. They can take some frustration out of your jobs. I recently used just a short piece 1" OD PVC and my spring's retainer/cover to accomplish the same job at no cost except slightly tired hands. There is no end to tricks of the trade to help with little jobs. As using nylon rope to lock your chainsaw's piston to change a clutch but remove the starter to replace the clutch (2nd address below). loger

Looks like a neat recoil tool. Different from what I've ever seen. I can see if you did much handheld type work especially.

I avoid that spring work like the plague. It's a real SOB. The tool has caught my interest though.

I Know The Frustration! I took a 2 mi walk to figure this one out and to recall the tool after trying about 30 minutes with just my hands. Bingo! With the 1" OD PVC as I/S Dia and the coil's cover as O/D Dia , I had it retained in about 5 minutes. Without the cover/retainer, I would have made another PVC OD cover to assist in the recoiling.

I initially learned this when the Son-In-Law needed to replace a rope on his Poulan chainsaw with the coil still in place until I saw him the next time. It probably took my wife's and my hands 30 minutes + to recoil the spring. I knew then it had to be a better way and searched to find this jig. loger
