Question Coil Spring Needed

Anyone have the name of a good spring maker? I need one 1/8" diameter round metal, about 11/2" diameter coil . It is a pulley return spring for an engine I am working on. It has 6 or 7 turns, with a long tail at one end and a 3/16 eye at the other end.

OmniCoil Spring Works in Brantford Ontario also winds springs. I needed new springs for the rear axel mounts on my 45 Case. The original springs are 3/4 square wire. OmniCoil will wind square wire springs where a lot of other manufacturers will not. I received a lot of good advice and "spring education" from WB Jones. They are very helpful. However, they could not wind square wire springs.

Andrew, boy, if it weren't for the 3/16 eye, you could wind that from 1/8" music wire... no problem. Any creative way to anchor the wire end absent the eye ? clamp maybe??
