Ha! I saw that one while searching. It's on my "things to figure out how to do" list. ;-)

@Harish: I edited my solution to incorporate your advice. Notice that I needed to pass two arguments into your \myfig: the length of the spring section and segment length in the coil decoration, so I wasn't able to code it as pretty as yours, but the final result is what I was after. Thanks for your help.

Nice solution, and it works across multiple pages.

comment Rotated, running text in right margin?
You are right, Harish. However, in my instance, I only needed it on one page. Of course, others' mileage may vary.

I tried exactly that, changing \coordinate (bottomspring) at (0,-3cm); from -3cm to -4cm to -5cm to -6cm to -7cm and the mass stayed constant and the platform moved: take a look at this picture Of course, I want the platform to be constant and the mass to vary.

This does not seem to work when the object in the tabular is a tikzpicture. Ideas?
