Aluminium rivets & burrs

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if anyone knows of any supplies for aluminium rivets and burrs.

I've found a few, but they only supply orthepedics companies. I've gotten to the point to where I'm thinking I might just try aluminium siding nails and washers (If anyone knows why this won't work let me know, I don't know anything about nails)

Try searching out suppliers of materials for miniature railway makers - not model railways. Miniature railway makers use plenty of different types of rivets

Thanks guys. I found some at tandy and a few sources in new Zealand. I'll probably grab some from tandy and see how long the shipping takes from new Zealand for now.
