Brass Rivets & Burrs #12

• brought to you by Dark Victory Armory
• All Rivets & Burrs Made in the U.S.A.

This style of rivet is a two part with rivet and burr. The rivet is inserted through the materials that you wish to connect and then the burr is forced down onto the shaft of the rivet to form an interference fit. The shaft of the rivet that extends past the burr is then peened with a hammer (ball-peen) to mushroom it out thus locking the burr in place. All our rivets are shipped with the corresponding # of burrs included but you can buy more here if you'd like.

These copper rivets and burrs are made from solid copper and will not rust. They are superior heavy-duty fasteners useful for:

• Leathercraft
• Bike seats
• Tack and harness construction and repair
• Vintage wood boat repair and joinery
• Saddlery
• Medieval armor building such as the SCA/MSR/WMA.

We now offer a Stainless-Steel side-strike rivet and burr setting too made in China. It does a nice job and can be used on #12 & #9 size rivets.

• Shaft Length note on the Round Head #9 - 3/4" is the actual shaft length not including head.
• Quantities are based upon industry standards. We don't hand count each box, however we do guarantee that the overall weight delivered is as promised.

If you buy 5 lbs of rivets we can and will include a FREE 6th LB!
