Re: [BKARTS] Where to get tiny brass Escutcheon Pins?



I get mine from model train supply places but I usually have to cut the ends off with side cuts because they are too long.

Have been searching for tiny brass tacks, brads, escutcheon pins to tack
back brass trim on a bible and a victorian album.  I need 1/4 inch length.
I am finding them in pound quantities and know that that amount will last
longer than a lifetime.  I have tried wordworking stores and the smallest I
can find are 1/2 inch.  Not only are they too long, but they are too thick.
Anyone know a source?
Thanks for the help.
Sue
