Broken off serial number pins

Postby Pap » Wed Oct 13, 2021 9:44 am

What size drill bit should I use to drill out the pins that are broken off.
I don't want to drill them to big.
I have looked but I can't find what is the right size of bit to use.
I am guessing around 1/8 inch but I'm not sure.

I've used "screw nails" before (as McMaster-Carr labels them--commonly called rivets). Here's a link: https://www.mcmaster.com/rivets/

Would think a full-line supplier in Australia would have something similar. Paying for shipping from the USA is expensive (as you know).

I just found these here at work 3.2mm dia x about 9mm long (maybe too long)

I don't mind paying for the shipping as long as it turns up
I had 1 parcel sent July 14 and another Sept 8 and they haven't turned up yet
The first parcel has dropped off the radar and the second has only got as far as Chicago in 6 weeks....

I hope your mail service is better than ours. Wouldn’t take much.

Cut those off and make them work. That would be a lot faster.

What length are they meant to be ?
These look like they are copper coated aluminium
What material are the originals ?

That would be great but he is in Australia and postage there would be a lot more than 4 little pins would cost.
