Rivet Tutorial
« on: May 06, 2012, 06:24:00 AM »
Step 1. The tools, a small thin plastic tube a piece of craft foam and whatever pointy object you have handy. I find the blade cases from hobby blades work great.



In this pic I have shown the custom tool I made, it is not necessary but it will make these tubes last longer.



Step 2. In a slow steady pace twist the plastic tube back in forth in semi to full circles.





The tube will begin to saw through the craft foam and leave the 'rivet' in tact.    



Step 3. With your pointy object gently pry out your rivet and repeat.

Brilliant!

I will be stealing this idea and probably any number of your future ones as well.

A good idea, but most rivets are/should be round, even on the models. But this beats some of the higher cost or time consuming methods, and with a bit of careful shaving/trimming should looke close enough for government work, as the saying goes [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

Great idea on the tools made.

Googly eyes. They have the perfect shape, come in multiple sizes and are auto-adhesives.

And those little round self-adhesive thingies made of craft foam/silicone/felt/rubber to stick on furniture legs so they don't scratch the floor.
