IN my search to find 13 gauge upholstery back springs, I came across the Ansaldi & Sons website. Some of the items they have listed are similar to Van Dykes. They also have listed, on this web page, the type of springs I'm looking for, 13 gauge 6" and 8" upholstery springs for backs or pillows. Their website looks good, with lots of stuff listed.
My hesitation is that when I did a google maps search of their street address, it shows just houses in a wooded suburban area. I called them and was told that they are an Internet only business. They don't have a store. But they said that they do have a warehouse. I don't know if that means that their garage is their warehouse, or if they have a physical warehouse someplace. The lady said that the address is the one on the website. When I did a reverse search of their street address, It shows that there are some people named Ansaldi living at that location, so that is at least a plus that they are using their names.

So, has anyone ordered anything from them? Do you know anything about them? Also, do you know of any other place where I can get 13 gauge upholstery back springs?

Best Wishes,
Stephen

I have a  Masco Fabrics catalog that lists 8" 13 ga. pillow back coils.
They haven't put out a new catalog since 2003, so you might have to call and see if they still carry them.
Their phone # is 800 326-2726

Yeah, the 13 ga. is very difficult/expensive to get today.  We still carry lawson units (which I believe are 11 ga), and all sizes of coils, but they're 9 ga.  I believe most of the spring mfg's discontinued a lot of the softer gauges because of the switch to foam/webbing/etc. 

Let me know if you find some.

Take care,
Andrew
