Can I buy things from them without a wholesale tax i.d. code?
To answer Dusty Leather, Chicago Screws are not flat enough on both sides and an cause points of pressure or abrasion when against skin. In my experience anyway.
To answer Tina: I'm pretty sure I'm attaching them right. I've done it according to all instructions and just to make sure I've experimented with sizes in the hole, post and anything else I could think of. I even tried reinforcing them with metal glues.
Luke Hatley, I keep thinking that tubular rivets with caps instead of washers and set with a press are the way to go. But I'm not sure where I can get the proper dies for the press to set them with without a tax code.
Thank you everyone for your help and thoughts!
