    Often found on stuff like telephone poles at least in the past, what's the purpose of a coiled coil spring lock washer?

    It's the same principle as a split lock washer, but with more take-up range. A spring washer can keep a fastener from falling out, and under tension, over the full range of the spring.

    Is the compression of the spring linear, or does it follow a geometric or logarithmic scale?

    Welcome back, Mr. Terry.

    Spring Force is generally considered to be linear with the force being equal to the spring constant time the distance of compresion or extension (F=kx)
