    Hello guys

    I am building a huge boiler and need to cover up some screws and make it look like it was riveted together. I thought I saw a company out there that sold these but I cant for the life of me remember who it was. So if anyone knows a good(cheap) way to make them or knows a company that sells them, please let me know

    THanks

    I use wooded plugs for this purpose.
    http://www.widgetco.com/wood-buttons (I dont buy mine there thats just an example, I buy mine from depot or rockler...now that Im looking at it the web is a better deal.)

    they work great, just glue them on and then paint! I have also found really cool looking upholstery tacks that I have done the same with them here is an example of those

    edge decor also makes a ton of different lab details cast in resin.
    they are not on the website but if you do not have a catalog I am sure they would be happy to send you one.

    Used "black" un galvanized 3/8" nuts with your multi purpose screws. The screws cup fits smoothly into hole and makes a clean non sharp rivet/bolt look, and is fast and also works for the building of the set. We found them in bulk at $1.00 per pound... $20 is a huge amount.
