Apparently there are 3 different spring clips regarding the wire itself. Looking at the SCR-300 manual 1945, the spring clips there are not rounded but are angled and have the thinner wire at 1.8mm or 15 gauge the other wire clip from a Battery box CS-79 lid catch for a BC 659 is not as rounded as the later type for a BC1000 works out at 2.00mm or 14 gauge, as opposed to a set of replacement catches to replace my post war set on my BC1000 which are thicker at 2.3 13 gauge.
Boring subject but interesting to see what is correct when changing the catches over from post war to wartime rather than rob similar looking catches which are not exactly the same as original. I will try and get some pictures up
