Use a jigsaw. I would get the springs first and get yerself a rough idea of the size plus you can get different sized springs.

tried using the spring in the feeders...found them to be a pain....always getting stretched...by roe.....ended up taping round the spring till about 1 inch of spring was left showing ..so the wheat wasn't coming out to easy...lol
