    Thanks, just doing my job. Oh, wait a minute, I don't have a job! Just doing what I like to do.... (I have six Saturdays and one Sunday each week) That's the price for being an old fart!

    Funny, but when I want my dogs to go out and play I yell out "Squirrel!" When I hear "Gerstner!, I run out!

    Thanks for tackling the rivet project Terry. I haven't been able to bring myself to attach the handle you restored so nicely for me with the wrong rivets. I've made you an offer for a pack on Ebay. I have a feeling the world will seem just a little more "normal" once this project is complete.

    I agree. I am a stickler for originality and was stunned to find that the correct rivets were not available. Every time I used the flat, truss-style rivets, I cringed. Not that they aren't correct on some boxes; but not all. It took considerable time and expense to get them made, but I feel it is worth it. I hope others do, too.

    Post pictures of your project when you get a chance. We'd love to see it...

    Yours are on the way.

    I sent you a private message. I don't have any rivets on Ebay right now, but still have them available.

    Are any of these rivets still obtainable? I was lucky enough to score some but I'm in need of more for another box that I'm restoring. Thanks!

    Ryan,

    Yes, more are available. I'll include extras over and above what you will need for the handles you send me to re-cover and refurbish. I am very generous in my counts.
