comment Appending a line (of fixed length) to a spring drawn with tikz coil
One last issue, which I'm sure is due my inexperience with relative positioning. As I change the \coordinate for (bottomspring), it seems the mass position remains constant while the platform moves. I would like the platform to be constant and the mass to move as I adjust that (bottomspring) coordinate. What determines which of these is constant (anchored) vs relative?

@Jake: Thanks for the \node vs \coordinate tip; that looks like what was causing the unwanted white space. Here, "attachment" is supposed to be the coordinate (!) joining the linear piece to the top of the circular mass. "pt2" is the center of the circular mass.

@Tobi: I clicked on the arrow to vote it as my answer, but its appearance didn't seem to change. Does it look "answered" on your end? (Sorry, I'm new!)
