  8. Do you want to increase productivity and profits with a great snap machine that is easy to use, and built by a reputable company still in business? One pair (one female, one male) of fully automatic, electric powered, 20 line, snap setting machines for sale. These are older model machines manufactured by the Ho Hung Ming company in Taiwan (https://www.hohm.com). They have a US location at: Ho Hung Ming USA Enterprise, 13525 Alma Ave, Gardena, CA 90249, Phone: (310) 327-4847. I have inquired about these machines from Ho Hung Ming, and they say the machines are older, and parts are no longer inventoried. They do not have owners manuals and no record of the serial numbers. One of the advantages of these older machines is that they are simple mechanical machines built to last. Like an old car, they are easier to repair than newer ones. In 22 years, I have never needed to repair these machines. They still run like a beast. This forum only allows me to load one image, due to file size, but I have lot's of images, that I can email you. I also have some videos of me using the machines that I can send. I purchased the machines from Melanie Machine Company in Vernon CA 22 years ago. The machines have hoppers that hold about 500 snaps. I have used both machines a lot, and they have worked great for me with very minor problems. Occasionally, a mal-formed snap would get stuck in the raceway or throat. These parts are easy to detach and clean out with a tube brush. When a snap gets clogged in the throat, it has always been cleared free with a long nose screw driver. Maintenance is easy, with colored holes to indicate where to add oil. Both machines have locator lights, and come with a simple adjustable guide/gauge. I have cleaned the machines and had them serviced by a sheet metal company who smoothed out all dents and dings. They made and installed a new cover for the male snap machine. It is not painted. The machines are in great mechanical working condition, rust free, with some paint chipping away in small spots. The new owner is responsible for painting the machines. A simple centering gauge is included. The new owner is also responsible for transportation including cost to transport. I do not know how much the machines weigh, but they are very heavy and I am guessing 300 pounds each. I am asking $4,000 (plus 8.5% CA sales tax) for the machines in as is condition, and will consider all offers. The machines are in my storage unit in the mission district in San Francisco. I can show them to you and you are welcome to try them out. Again, these are for 20 line rings snaps, NOT 24 line.
  9. Hello all, I'm newbie here and in leather world, I need help for all mastery here how to setting/installing round head button stud ? I'm looking on internet, but I haven't found what tools to make a hole for button stud ? because the hole for this button is different. It's not just hole but like there is a line hole or in the others I saw there is another small hole above the line. Like this o---O Thank you guys !
  10. Is there a general consensus as to which rivets are "the best" - e.g. best hold, easiest to set, best price? Assume for the sake of discussion that the backs will be hidden and only the fronts/tops will be visible, so overall appearance isn't the big issue.

    Hi! My name is Carrie and I have been playing around with making my own bags because I couldn't afford the ones I wanted to buy so I decided to try to make my own! I am IN LOVE with working with leather and am learning so much (mostly by trial and error). I like unlined leather feel and look for the inside of the bags, but am missing having a pocket. I like having the outside look clean without any stitches (I use a sewing machine to sew my leather). I'm stumped and thinking there is not a way to accomplish the look I want. Any suggestions? Also, any recommendations on where to order unique rivets? I want to expand my rivet collection! Thank you in advance! Shine on! Carrie
  12. Hey all, I've been look all over for stainless steel rivet caps to match the 104 tubular rivets from Weaver. Contacted a few places to no avail, was wondering if y'all had any tips. Depending on the price, I might be able to swing a special order if you know a place that could make them but doesn't stock regularly. It is confusing to me that Weaver would have matching caps for all their other rivets but not the stainless steel. But alas... If stainless steel is not an option for some reason, do you have any suggestions for another material? Cannot be nickel plated, must be resistant to rust, and must be ok against skin. Thanks!!
  13. I was wondering if anyone has used the aluminum burr rivets and what their opinion is? Tandy carries them and I tried them on a dog collar. They were nice to work with. I can't seem to find another source for them other than Tandy. I'm just wondering about longevity. I need something strong and silver colored. I know I can use Chicago screws but I was looking for something a little thinner and lower profile. Thanks, Julie
  14. Well, I finally made the plunge yesterday. Tandy had a sale on the Pro Hand Setter, and with my discount, it was significantly reduced. I already had a lot of the sets for it, as I'd been planning on using my Harbor Freight press, but couldn't find a way to keep the sets aligned well and using the 2D/3D stamps and alphabet stamps was a bit wonky. This setter has a table with rear guide rails that are adjustable and will really improve accuracy. I can also put hole punches and stitching chisels in it. I tried it out with many of the sets last night, and was impressed. No more clinching over rivets! I still need to get the Segma snap sets and wide rivet set. Line 20 and 24 I have. The only issue I see is they don't provide a way to lock the angle of the alphabet and 3D stamps to keep them aligned with the piece. The Tandy video on using the setter with alphabet stamps shows the guy mis-aligning the first letter very noticeably. I'll have to get into my engineer mode, (yes, be VERY afraid), and see if I can come up with something. Jeff
  15. I try to skive my leather so that it is the best thickness for the application. But, when I try to select a snap, or rivet length, they are always too short, or too long. I know that brass and copper rivets with the burr, I can cut it properly. But it seems that all the "factory" length ones are just wrong, as opposed to just right. Is there a source of "in between" sizes? Jeff
  16. I’m looking for some of this hardware, this is off of a German military bag from the WWII. All the riveted in buttons and then this sam brown type stud are aluminum, I don’t care so much about the aluminum as I do finding something this shape, it’s almost like some kind of shouldered rivet. Anyone know about these? Thank you!
  17. I am working on a project where I am trying to connect pieces of leather with my copper rivets. I have both #9 and #12 rivets. I also have the tools for each size. The issue I’m running into is after I punch down my washer onto the rivet, it comes loose. I have tried switching the different size washers (thinking I had mixed them up) and that didn’t work. I’m really not sure what is going on or what I’m doing wrong. I have ruined so many rivets and I wanted to see if anyone here had any pointers on how to get them to stay tight after I set them with the setter. Is it what I’m using as an anvil? I’m so confused. Thank you in advance for any help and guidance.
  18. Hi. I am making a bag and bed to put a rivet on the side just like this bag in the picture. My brain is telling me that putting a hole through the seam will make the thread break. But dooney and Bourke does it ...so there must be a way to do this without breaking the thread and risking a weak seam that will come apart. Anyone has any advice on doing this? Also what tools makes those grooves like the one on the loop?

  22. Hello, all! I'm looking to create something similar to this, and I love the dainty look of the fasteners. The problem is, I have absolutely no idea what they are. I lost this bracelet, so I can't remember what the back looked like, but it doesn't look like a rivet--or at least not a traditional one. http://imgur.com/a/9bzQw Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Brass Rivets

    Looking for a source of semi-tubular brass rivets with a flat head. It seems like the semi-tubular rivets available online has a round or oval head. I'm also searching for #12 solid brass rivets wit a head smaller than 3/8". Don't know if these are even available, but figured this was the best place to ask.
  24. G'day guys! I got my hand on this hand press,anyone know where I can find the dyes for it? Please!!!!! ;))
  25. Hey all, New member here, but I'm running out of places I can search for help on either ideas or instruction. I have a hat band I'm wanting to make, and I haven't yet gotten all the supplies because I'm not sure what all I'll need for the project. My goal is to make a leather hat band with unobstructed bullets around the outside. I'm wanting to avoid the typical bullet loops look or stitching around the front of the bullet, as I feel it would obscure the bullet itself aesthetically. I'm going to be using pre-fired .357 Magnum brass bullets and leather for the hat band itself. I have a hat band currently on my hat, and the decorative pieces on it have a type of diamond-shaped rivet with prongs that punched through the band to be bent back to secure them on sort of like a staple. Simple stuff. The bullets I'm getting can have a hole drilled into them, and in my mind's eye I pictured something like some sort of brad or rivet securing inside the drilled hole of the bullet, so essentially the bullet would have prongs sticking out of it on one side that I can then use to secure it to a hat band cleanly. I hope that made sense. A friend suggested some sort of contact cement or glue or goop but I worry that a bullet's surface area onto leather would prove both too small and weak in lasting under duress of wear and tear, and would be messy and not clean in presentation if I were to go this route. tl;dr: I'm searching for help on if there's a way to give the bullet some sort of prongs that can be put through a leather hat band while looking slick and put together and not sloppy. Would there be a way to simply secure the rounded surface area of the bullet to a flat rivet itself which then can be secured to the hat band? Is it even possible to drill a hole into a bullet and have something inserted that would create prongs for the bullet itself? Are prongs even the best way to go about this? or would glue or goop or contact cement prove better? The leather hat band will be sitting snug against a high-quality leather cowboy hat so I also want it to be safe against the leather of my hat without scratching or something. I'm completely new at all of this so any and all ideas and help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time!
