  • Anyone with any experiance with Rivets?

    Hi all, I'm new to these forums and have my first questions,

    I want to put extra rivets on some jeans and figured there was too much I didn't know.

    How many types of rivets ae there and do they require a different tool out them on? The 2 main types of rivets I've seen are what I call the:

    "The flush fit" this when you look at it looks like a circle within a circle and looks to be pushed on with the denim inbetween the parts.


    "The Cybal" looks like a miniture Cybal with a Nipple that sticks out from the center. Not sure how these are put on, maybe a push fitting again.


    Are there hand tools I can use and are is there a stanardised size for rivets? I spoke to some people and they use Pneumatic tools for this, I always thought those tools pulled and not pushed, can someone clear this up a little for me please?

    thanks,

    I have to admit that I honestly don't have a clue but welcome to the forum anyway! Out of curiosity, why do you want more rivets on jeans?

      customisation projects, rivets are just part of it. It just happens that I don't know how that works.

          The jeans manufacturers put these on with a rivet gun run on compressed air.

          I would think the nearest thing you could get, domestically, is an eyelet setter.

          This is a toolkit available from haberdashers shops, oddly enough, to set eyelets.

          It consists of a punch, either operated by hand or hammered, to make a hole in the fabric. The eyelet, a selection of which is usually included in the kit, is then offered to the hole: you turn the fabric over, put the back of the eyelet on and hammer again. I'm not sure if this tool could be used for rivets.

          The alternative is a tool which does the whole operation in one,also available from haberdashers and department stores like House of Fraser.

          Don't forget that rivets on jeans play havoc with leather soft furnishings....
