I've found
a source in Germany that has brass rivets with 0.3mm heads on
0.2mm
shanks; that's .012" heads on .008 shanks, but that means you
need to
deal with a #90 drill or thereabouts. They will fall straight
through
a hole drilled with a #80 drill. You don't want to ask the
price :-(
Dennis:

I'll bite - what's the price and where can they be had? How about
the
other brass rivets you mentioned (or are these one and the same)?
Ted,

These are offered by Fohrmann at Euro 6.50 ($7.70) incl. 16% VAT per
40 rivets. So send over your nuggets!
