    Setting odd shaped rivets

    I just got some exciting new rivets but looking at them I'm not sure exactly what to use to set them. The ones I am having the most confusion about is some round pyramid ones. All of the setting tools I have are either domed or flat. Also got some resin ones and fake diamond ones that I'm afraid might break using normal methods. Any hints there?

    Fercdco pro 2000, Adler 30, Stimpson riveter

    Listing for a 96 year old retired leatherworker and saddlemaker in Northern California. The ferdco has a ton of accessories I’ve included one page of the original invoice. The sewing machines are low hour and well maintained as for prices let me know about prices I don’t want my friend to get ripped off or taken advantage of, or maybe his prices are too high, any advice is appreciated. I'm sure any of these machines would come with any of their accessories like rivets, thread, needles, and anything else he has for them, He's been selling everything in his shop.

    Looking for rivet-backed spikes

    Hi all - I'm looking for a source for rivet backed spikes that either peen out or have an actual rivet post. In other words, something other the screw back that is commonly seen. I've been using thread lock to secure the screw back ones for a while but it's an additional step and in my eyes has a little less of a professional look. Similar to: https://www.springfieldleather.com/Spike-Screwback-Np-1-2-100pk - but no screw back. Thanks!
  4. First post here on the forum. New member and looking forward to learning more about this craft. Apologizes if I am posting in wrong section, I was unsure where to post this question. I am looking to find out what the best type of rivet is to use. They have to be both strong and look nice. They will be being used on dog leashes and harnesses, so need to not fail with pulling force. Originally I was going to go with a double cap rivet, but did some reading and learned they are not that strong(if I understood correctly).I dont have much knowledge as far as rivets go when it comes to their strength. Can anyone suggest a rivet type that would suit my needs? I attached a photo of what I am after. I was hoping to get this on both sides, but the back side can appear different providing it has a clean look. Thanks in advance for any help and or suggestions.
  5. Hello! Beginner trying to figure out exactly what I need to do a few basic projects. Specifically belts, with lots of hardware (think bondage style stuff), wallets, and small bags. Would you recommend 6-7oz or 8-9oz leather for these projects? I have already invested in the Pres-n-Snap tool but need more dies. It is frustrating trying to decode the many brands/sizes of rivets! Is there such thing as Medium (5/16" post) and Large (1/2" post)? Hoover told me they manufacture the following double sided rivet die sets for my tool. Can you recommend to me which of these die sets are best suited for riveting 2 pieces of leather together for belts, wallets and small bags? Would I need a whole different die set to add decoration rivets- just in 1 piece of leather? Is one brand preferable? How do you translate "Line" to size? The "mm" sizing refers to the head, not the post? DOT Speedy Rivet 11 Line DOT Speedy Rivet 16 Line Fasnap 9mm Rivet Fasnap 10 mm Rivet THANK YOU SO MUCH for your help!

    Washers for Semi-Tubular Rivet

    Do any of you guys or gals use a semi-tubular rivet with a back side washer? If so do you know of anyone that sales the rivet and washer as a set? See the six rivets in the example image where the leather is folded for the buckle. www.all-about-pitbull-dog-breed.com/bmz_cache/9/92f5f8979e93e74bb6b3383ef7b99e9d.image.550x550.jpg

    Mini Rivet Box

    I swear I had been mulling over making a box by riveting it before I saw Retswer's at http://leatherworker.net/forum/topic/76655-riveted-rivet-box/ , that being said I did take some tips from what was said on his thread and made sure to skive my flaps down. This is a pretty small box, less than 2" x 2". The lid is actually wood from mitered frames with a scrap of leather glued onto the bottom. I think it turned out pretty well for a mach 2 (mach one turned out to not be feasible)
  9. Hi! I am new to leatherworking, learning a lot along the way! I want to learn about riveting--I see on ebay antique rivet setters for sale for around $30, described in "working condition." Are these tools appropriate for setting rivets, or are they not really useful? I also see in the forums that die sets are mentioned--do I need more than one set of dies? Do the rivet setters usually come with a die set? Thank you so much! Dana
  10. Does anyone know if the Tandy hand presses use dies from other sources or do they only use Tandy dies? I need a 3/8 or 5/16 hole punch. I've talked to the people at the local Tandy store a couple of times, but they have no idea if a 3/8 punch is available that fits this.
  11. I have a large collection of hardware I'm selling. The amount in the photo might be less than what I actually have- I noticed more pieces after I took the photos. I am NOT selling individual pieces. Each photo has the grouping of what I'm selling. Please don't ask for a selection of each group, I won't do it. I also have a ton of real snakeskin hides I'll be posting soon for sale! Email me- fastest way for a response- Rachael@heavyleathernyc.com
  12. I have a brand new Weaver Leather Heritage Foot Press and a full set of dies and adapters for it. I paid $1650 in 2015. Never used! I will take $1100 OBO. You pick-up or pay freight. Also for sale, I have hundreds of spots, rivets, snaps and other embellishments sized for it. Message me and I will email you a link to a complete list and photos.

    Automatic Rivet Press for sale

    Liquidating leather shop machinery. Here is an automatic feed foot press rivet machine. Although the name plate is missing, it looks to be a Tubular Rivet and Stud Company machine vintage about 1947 or so. Currently set up for 5/16" tubular rivets it automatically feeds the rivet, punches the hole and sets the rivet with either a splash anvil or cap - and does it flawlessly as did most machines of that era. Hopper holds easily 1000 rivets which it sorts, orients and feeds automatically. I have owned and operated this machine for over a decade in a gunleather shop and it has never needed anything but more rivets. Local pickup preferred - weighs about 350# More photos here: https://eugene.craigslist.org/search/sss?query=rivet press&sort=rel Will also be listing the smaller Heritage press in the background soon. It's set up for belt loop staples but I still have the small auto-feed rivet mechanism. PM for more info.

    Solid Brass Hardware Supplier

    I am a huge fan of buckle guy, but I am looking for some more suppliers that offer similar quality/style without minimums. I am specifically looking for some sleek/minimal looking solid brass center bar buckles. It would also need to be a situation where I could continue to buy stock in the future, so I don't think anything on eBay or amazon would be a good choice (unless you know more than I do). Ive checked out buckleguy, OTB, leatherguy, leathersmith, weaver, zack white, tandy, springfield, brettuns... Maybe overseas? I don't know. Thanks! Zayne
  15. I have a hand press from Allstarco with an assortment of dies for sale. Allstarco sells a variety of dies that fit this press. They are used for setting rim sets for adding crystal rhinestones to your projects. I used swarovski crystals in my projects and this has been a great help. It is barely used as I want to go with different model. Items Included w/ Retail Value: Hand Press - $85 Die for size 20 (5mm) Round Nailheads or SS20 Rim Settings - $38 Die for SS30 & SS34 (6mm and 7mm) Round Rim Settings - $38 Die for size 16 (4mm and 4.5mm) Round Nailheads or SS16 Rim Settings - $38 Includes some pre-set crystal chatons ($20 Value) an assortment of 16ss Swarovski flat back crystals with rim settings ($100 value) and my leftover spot nailheads ($20 value). Will sell ALL for $220 shipping included anywhere in the US.

    Hand Press And Dies For Sale

    I have a hand press with an assortment of dies for sale. This press is still being manufactured, so the dies are readily available. Minkus Margo sells over 50 types and sizes of dies that include dies for setting snaps, grommets, eyelets, punching holes in leather, setting rivets, setting spots aka nailheads, setting spikes, and setting lots of shapes of decorative rivets. Allstarco also sells dies that fit this press. The brass dies listed here are from Allstarco. They are used for setting rim sets for adding crystal rhinestones to your projects. They also work great for setting spots. This is a great press and I would recommend it for anyone who wants to add decorative elements to their projects. I am a full time professional leather worker. I bought the press and dies when I was starting out. I'm only selling it because I am investing in a larger multi feed foot press so I can work more efficiently. Here is a listing of what is included along with the retail value Hand Press - $114 7mm die for setting spots (approximately 1/4") - $34.99 6mm die for setting rhinestone chatons - $52.99 7mm die for setting rhinestone chatons - $52.99 8mm die for setting rhinestone chatons - $52.99 10mm die for setting rhinestone chatons - $52.99 6 mm die for setting rhinestone rivets - $39.99 Brass die for SS 20 rim set rhinestones - $38 Brass die for SS 30 and SS34 rim set rhinestones - $38 Unopened bag of 300 7mm spots - $10.50 I will send along the crystal chatons that are left for you to practice with. I will sell the whole package for $275 shipping included anywhere in the US. I have attached an image of the press & dies and some examples of items I have made with it.

    Rivet through lacing?

    I inherited a partially built purse. It is a Tandy Marketplace kit. My brother in law started it and I would like to finish it. Instead of using the side leather pieces he laced the sides together. Now I don't know where to attach the long shoulder handle? I thought if I used a 2 inch piece of leather and wrapped it over the lacing then rivet it, I do not want to damage the lacing or have it not hold up. Any help is appreciated.
  18. Hi, this is my first post and my first attempt at a laptop sleeve! I made this laptop sleeve, one side floral, one side basket weave with a brand. I realize the floral is too small for the side it is on, but I didn't want to go too far off pattern free hand (I am not nearly that experienced). After doing this I realize I need to get a better swivel knife and a better basket weave stamp. My roomie upstairs was not happy with my banging away on all those stamps! -Leather was 7-8 oz euro side from tandy. -Saddle tan gel antique -Resist with Eco Flo Top Finish Gloss -Double sided rivets I appreciate any advice you all might have! Or tips and tricks for next time. Thanks for looking. Lane (AB, Canada)
  19. Hey all, I'm looking into foot press riveters for the shop. I'm looking primarily at the Heritage Foot Press and the foot press offered by Dan Byler, the Amish magician out of Dewittville, New York. I'm wanting to focus on solid brass tubular rivets, but the ability to do a double capped jiffy rivet would be nice too. A few questions I have: I have seen the Heritage Foot Press with some attachments I cannot find anywhere. Here's a video showing the attachment and if you look close you can see the style of rivet (photos attached as well). Anyone know where these attachments were picked up at? Anyone have a rivet source that will have a versatile selection? Looking for options. Has anyone bought a rivet machine from Dan Byler? I have the photos he sends in the mail, but no info on the types of rivets, dies, etc. that are compatible with it. Do you recommend any other foot press rivet machines out there that are extremely capable, affordable, and versatile in rivet types? I'm definitely leaning towards the machine from Dan Byler. I have his Bench-Top Press with Self Centering Table, and it's outstanding. The prices are right up my alley as well. You just can't find machines at these prices and quality. Would love any help y'all can give me. Really wanting to do my research and purchase the right machine. Cheers, Stephen
  20. Hi all! Does anyone have experience with auto-loading rivet machines? An ebay search for "Rivet machines" turns up quite a few used ones in the $1k-$3k price range, but I would love to hear if anyone can recommend a reputable brand. I'm ideally looking for something that could handle double-cap rivets. Thanks!
  21. Any idea what rivets I need for this setter? I did some research online and all I could find was that it was a Harness Rivet Setter. By the looks of the post it look like tubular rivets???
  22. well, 498 rivets. It was a package of 500 and I used 2 testing. These are blind rivets, copper with a steel mandrel. It's grip length is for thicknesses between 0.188 inches to .25 inches (4.8mm to 6.35mm) I'd planned on just returning them, but they were a special order so I figured I'd offer them here first given they don't seem easily available. $30 + $6 for shipping via USPS flat rate envelope. This is what I paid, so I'm just looking to recoup the purchase price. If you're interested, let me know ASAP otherwise they're going back tomorrow.

    Automatic Spot Setting Machine

    My hands are getting tired setting 1/4" spot on my leather horse tack. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on a supplier for a machine? (one with a hopper at the very least and a guide for setting them straight)? I just need to make sure whatever the one I buy can set them so they are touching. (the last machine I bought doesn't allow them to be set that close together and will not work with the thick leather I use) I have just outgrown my current ones and would like to buy the right one the first time. Thanks everyone for your help. smile emoticon Here is a picture of what I make for reference to what I need to achieve for edging my overlays.

    Problem Setting Brass Rivets.

    Hello all, I am having issues setting brass rivets with my rivet setter (https://www.etsy.com/listing/118895691/stud-rivet-setter-tool-machine-hand). The posts always end up indenting the caps, even when I cut the post down. If I cut the posts any shorter than I do the caps come off without much effort. I don't think it is an issue with the rivet setter, it seems to function as it is intended. The die used on the machine is a 12mm double cap die. I am using 7mm and 9.2mm double cap rivets with differing post sizes for various leather thicknesses. My plan was to cut down any posts that were too long, but as I mentioned, the posts still indent the caps. Have any of you had similar issues? Thanks Zayne
  25. Hello, I am making a few small cases that need to be riveted on the sides. The cases are pretty small so my rivet machine (the heritage foot press from Weaver) wont get into that small of a hole. It will work great for bigger bags - but these small things just wont fit. Anyone have a great tool idea or option for setting rivets inside small bags or pouches? I am using double capped rivets, but I guess it doesn't matter if the inside doesn't turn out pretty. Thanks!
