Post Sometimes I get inspired...
Sat with a Rolex Air King with a series 1500 movement last night, when I had this thought..."this hairspring looks as if...."

Yes, it did! I replaced the collet on the hairspring and fitted it on the Angelus SF240 staff, the movement ran only a 100 seconds minus a day....so I shortened the hairspring a little and boom, 5 seconds fast a day...it is also one of the white ones, so it will last forever..

I have seen a lot of those hairsprings, it becomes routine after a while.
