This is mostly photos for now, but I can answer questions until I get the actual document done.

here are the photos of the items I made.

Fake rivet maker

and what the fake rivets look like in red brass

shape die (a paisley or half of a yin-yang if you prefer)

slightly different angle to show the depth or lack thereof.

and what it does.

(I have a curved line also but I will post it in a day or so along with photos of the next die I am going to make as well)

all of these were made on my lathe as blanks mostly (except the anvil and die for the rivet maker)
to fit my sheetmetal holepunch. I can not guarantee they will not damage the tool but so far they seem to not be having any effect on it. (I have applied a lot more pressure punching through 3mm aluminum and .020" titanium sheet so...)

the tool I am applying these to:

Interesting.  I don't often work with thin sheet, but looking forward to learning more about how to do it.  Thanks.
