Castro Needle Holder

The castro needle holder shown below left has sustained a broken spring, a frequent occurance with this particular type of instrument. Most repair services would use normal ”silver welding” with the result that the spring afterwards will not be as flexible and will not have the ”bouncy” effect it should have. We, at Dumaine Precision, use a special micro-welding method for this repair in order to avoid removing material and keeping the tools flexibility
