double cap rivet but flat and solid

Recommended Posts

does anyone make a double cap rivet thats easy to set however with a flat front and solid non hollow top like the tops of copper rivets. I basically want the appearance of the copper rivet but don't need the extreme hold and slow install time.

I don't think this is possible. The stem has to be tubular, as that is how the rivet is set.

If you place your work on a hard, smooth and flat surface, when you set the double cap rivet, the end result will be a flat cap on the bottom side. Turn your work over and gently tap the other side of the double cap rivet on the hard surface and then you have a flat head double cap rivet.

hmm do you think I could flatten it first before setting? 

the reason I'm looking for this is so that I can cut the edges off and turn the circle into a square

I don't believe this is possible with a double cap rivet. The cap of the rivet and the stem of the rivet on the male side are 2 separate pieces. I had to destroy some rivets to disassemble an item recently, and this is what I found.

double; I know you can't cut the edges and retain the integrity of the rivet head. Cutting off one part of the edge is one way I use to remove them.

The Chicago screws is the way I think. You can buy square ones from Chinese sellers on ebay

Hi Treesner, recently I launched my new designs - double-sided rivets on my site http://dot-gas.com/jeans_rivet_p1.html 
I do flat cap and convex cap for the moment, both available for size 8MM and 9.5MM, and they can go with tacks in 3 available lengths 6.5, 8 and 12MM. 
They are made from the high-grade brass material and designed for high-end products, a perfect combination of appearance and functionality.

thanks are flat ones hollow/ two pieces? basically I want to grind away material so that I can make a square instead of a circle but all the ones ive done ive found they are two pieces and fall apart when I grind them unlike the pure copper ones

These look fantastic and have been looking for rivets like this. Will certainly place an order.

Hey Everyone!

Actually working to develop a flat cap rivet as we speak and stumbled on this post!

Have a look at the image below. Let me know your thoughts?!

Thanks.

I like the look. I would buy them in chrome, brass and black if they were available.
