      I have gone to a good hardware store and found brass brads of the correct
      diameter, cut them to length and peened them like a rivet. Worked quite
      well, I plated them with a nickle plating kit I had from Antique electronic
      supply. Also found brass brads that worked for attaching labels.
      I used a jewelers staking set to punch out those brads and pushing them
      back in, peening them etc. Watch ebay for cheap deals on staking sets,
      they are super for working on bugs and other small items.
