    Default #18 x 3/4" Escutcheon pins

    Just found some pins at Home depot. I had bought some at Lowes but they are now plated steel. The pins are Crown bolt part #45304 and SKU#030699453047. Bring a magnet. I anneal them on the stove as needed. Heat till the flame and pin change color and quench in water. I flatten the heads with a file after peening. I have more # 0 and #00 washers on the way from Micro Fasteners.

    They have the brass ones still, should be right next to the plated ones....

    Default Pins

    The stock must very from store to store. I like the #18's they are very close to most of the pins in the razors I have worked.

    Few have the larger pins. I have problems peening both sides when using 1/16" rod. I have to make a tool to pre-head the 1/16" rod. Any suggestions?

    Default Pins

    Look at my post on new scales they are pinned with these. The pins look like common brads with a domed head and measure 0.053 inch in the shaft. Slightly smaller in diameter than the Dovo nickle silver pins from Classic. I re-pinned a Wester Brothers some time ago at the wedge and these were a press fit. A 1/16" pin would have required re-drilling. I find these are easier to peen when annealed.
