Tapered Brass Pins

Postby Richard Evans » Sun Dec 16, 2012 1:27 pm

Many thanks to Dick Grindley for the information on tapered pins (Gauged Brass Clock Pins) in the last newsletter. I have ordered a selection of various sizes from Meadowes and Passmore (www.m-p.co.uk). They are about £4 per pack of 100 by the time you include postage. The taper is about 0.4mm over a 15mm length, eg 0.8-1.2mm. Not only great as key pivots, they make excellent rivets for spring attachement.
