    Someone please help me find or create a 1/16″ rivet set for my timer’s brass eccentric screw which is actually a hollow brass rivet end, that needs to be a peened-over collar.
    Like this one for early Ford, but with a 1/16″ pilot instead of an 1/8″ pilot.
    I have googled to the ends of the earth. Not out there. But, it’s like this one:

    If someone will make me one, I’ll buy it and use it. Thanx

    ~ A public service announcement ~
    Remember Harley-Davidson’s stainless steel (clamp) mirrors? They, nor the chrome riser stem would ever rust. Had Harley-Davidson stamped into the riser, even.

    Obsolete now at H-D®, all their mirror risers thread into a boss for the handlebar levers.

    Rejoice my friends, the s/s mirror is alive an well at V-Twin Mfg. Part # 34-1573 (pair). The s/s mirrors are identical to H-D’s – only the script is left off the riser.

    Included with the mirror are the 0.0000000001″ thickness of chrome on the mirror’s pinch sleeve that grips the mirror riser. The “chrome” bits on this junk will rust 2-days after installation, running against a headwind. If I cut slices as thin as their chrome from a Thanksgiving turkey, our relatives would never come back.

    So, we’re working on a s/s sleeve to replace the chrome one. Shouldn’t be too hard except you know the s/s tubing has to be metric, being as their “Well Made in Taiwan”. We’re working on it.

    “Included with the mirror are the 0.0000000001″ thickness of chrome on the mirror’s pinch sleeve that grips the mirror riser.”
    Note: Not exclusive to V-Twin®, H-D® (and every other “clamp & grip-sleeve” on the planet) uses the thin-chrome hardware on both clamp and sleeve, + a gnarly chrome lock washer that gouges the clamp right away on installation. It’s been that way for 40 yrs.
    It seems H-D® took their entire mirror design and gave it to V-Twin.

    I cut my stock 8″ HD risers off to 6″, put rust-reformer on the raw end and it weathered 14 yrs. without flaking at all. Harley chrome is so good, the chrome didn’t flake at the cut line. I have them on the rigid pan today. V-Twin’s riser’s are the same quality chrome.
