some time ago you could buy a bench top drill press aparatus that took an electric hand drill and became a drill press.

Hi Steve
I'm in Sydney Australia , US$100 and shipping id say be a least another 40 than convert that to AU$ that comes to AU$205 and this would be something that might get used one maybe twice a year to clean between the springs , I think I will have a look around OZ first to see what is for sale here or make one cant be that hard surely !
could you anyone post a picture of one for me

If you only want to remove the spring a couple of times per year for cleaning and don't want to spend a lot of cash, then do as I do and loop 4-6 cable ties around the spring and tighten them each a bit at a time and the spring will compress enough to remove it. Clean. Replace spring, then cut the ties and it 'springs' back in to place... Keep you fingers clear :-)
