1/8" / 3.3 mm Plastic Push Pin Rivets
« on: June 14, 2020, 03:43:02 PM »
​​​​I'm re-spraying my 100 kW induction furnace driver unit and need to re-attach the various labels that were fixed with 1/8" 3.3 mm black plastic 'push pin' rivets. I can find much bigger ones but not as small as 3.3 mm.

Does anyone know of a UK source?

Anything suitable here? colors probably a problem as only appear to be white.

Seems like something suitable for 3d printing if you can't find a source?

A moderator on another forum pointed me to RS Components who have a similar rivet that they call a 'snap rivet' - not quite the same but probably OK.

Bag of 200 ordered.
