Fake Rivet heads
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
I use wooded plugs for this purpose.

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
with some looking you can find some big cool looking ones.
Thanks Allen! You are the MAN!

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.
Always looking out you are. :)
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.
