|Before: button and pin finding|
1/2-inch pin finding
JB Weld or glue of your choice
Select the button.
|Remove the button shank|
Use a wire cutter to cut off the shank of the button.
Sand the button, if needed, to remove all sharp edges caused by removing the shank.
|After: Pin by GeltDesigns.com|
Glue on the pin back. (We did not solder the pin because we were not sure if the button was solid brass or just brass plated and we did not want to risk harming the button).
Allow the glue to cure overnight or according to the glue maker's instructions.
