Black Steel Tubular or Post Rivets
Two Sizes of Post Length: 9/16" or 5/8"
Leather craft rivets for saleBlack tube rivets sold in packs of 100
These are old stock steel tubular rivets with a tube diameter of 1/8" and head diameter = 3/8".
Available in the lengths shown, 5/8" or 9/`6".  These work best when the tube is about 1/8" longer than the entire thickness you're going through.
Here's an example:  You have a layer of leather and two layers of steel that you want to join together.  The three layers measure 1/2" in total,
which is the same as 8/16". Add 1/8", which is 2/16", and that tells you that you need a 10/16" rivet, which 5/8" rivet.  Got it?  Are you with me here?
Slightly rounded heads.  We sell these in bags of 100 for $10, delivered to any USA location.
Backing washers (burrs) included so you can use them if you feel like it. Set them in a hand press, machine press, or with a splash tool.

Steel "A is for Apple" 1/8-inch Tubular Rivets
Very small craft rivets for sale
Aren't these just the cutest little rivets that you ever did see?  1/8" tube length, so these are for joining thin items.  Each rivet has
the letter 'A' stamped into the slightly domed cap, so maybe these are for joining Aluminum or Apples or Antimony or Anthony to an Aardvark.
We suspect these would also work to join steel plates or other things that don't start with the letter 'A.'

Silver or Black or Brass Aluminum Binder Posts (Chicago Screws)
1/2" or 1" length
Binder Posts or Chicago Screws for sale, free shippingbinder posts for leather craft work
Aluminum binder posts or Chicago Screws, as they're sometimes known, are handy substitutes for rivets.  We sell them in two sizes:  1/2 inch and 1 inch.
Both sizes have a head diameter of 7/16", and that's at both ends (the head and the screw-in piece).
Use the 1" size if the part you're attaching, plus the thickness of the wood it's going through, is somewhere
between 1" and 1-1/4", and there'a a diameter of 3/16" available.  The 1/2" Binder Posts have a reach of 1/2" to 3/4".  Just push the fat part
of one of these into a drilled hole, put the screw in from the other side, and screw them together.  You're done.  They draw down tight and hold well, and if you
want to be sure they don't loosen over time just put a drop of superglue in the threads just before you screw it together.
The post end is rounded/domed and smooth - it looks like a rivet head and nobody will know except you and us and we're not talking.
We use these as center pins through some of the heavier duty trunk handle brackets, and also to attach thick handles to heavy wood trunks.
