Thanks for the photos Mike. That is a nice chair and the cushion springs are very similar.

The only metal parts on mine are the springs, the screws that hold the rockers on and the screws that fix the back of the arms to the rear legs.

Having had a closer look at the rockers, I think new ones are definitely in order. One of them does look like it’s cut formed, thanks for pointing that out. But the other one has a flat spot where it has worn which no amount of bending will get rid of. It’s hard to see in the photos but it is major wear, so much so that the thickness of the rocker in the middle is quite a bit thinner than at the ends.
