“I would like to express my thanks for your company's help and expertise in fabricating those tiny bellows contact springs out of 0.001" beryllium copper stock. I particularly would like to congratulate Rick for his innovation in doing the "impossible."

These springs are used in a NASA TDRS satellite (Flight #7) microwave solid state amplifier, and you extricated us from a very difficult situation when the original electroformed bellows springs were found to be unacceptable.”
