Tinne brass pins 8 pcs.
With "Tinne" you get 8 brass nails - 1.6 mm round head pins made of solid brass MS-64 with a share of 64% copper and 36% zinc. Pins made of this alloy are very easy to shape when riveting and are thus ideal for attaching historic and fantastic fittings in medieval reenactment and LARP.
Dimensions: 1.6 mm x 13 mm.
Fix fittings and decorations with brass nails, how does that work?
The fitting or decoration to be fastened is placed on the belt or pocket. Mark the required 2 mm holes in the desired places and punch the leather with an eel. Of course, using a pair of punch pliers is also possible, but the hole must not be too large then, because the leather is punched out and, as with the use of eels, can not contract again around the rivet. The head of the pin should of course be on the side that is visible later, the so-called "show side". Depending on the thickness of the material, shorten the brass pin on the pointed side to 1.5 mm - 2 mm and tap it in circular strokes with the smallest possible round hammer, so that a slightly arched head is formed and the fitting is solidly connected to the backing material. For smoothing a sandpaper with 600er Körning is recommended. For a better grip, you can also use a small washer, but the riveting is then not so medieval.
Have fun crafting!
