Thread: Domed Split rivets

    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.
