I had a spring break on a piece of yard equipment. Since it was just the curved tip on the end that broke off, I figured I could just heat up the end, and bend it around to form a new curve. It worked, at least until I put it in place. Once tension was applied, it broke again right at the spot where I had formed the curve. This happened twice. Now I'm wondering what I did to the metal to make it so brittle. Could dipping it in water after heating and bending it have caused the problem?
