Off Topic: Jewelry repair-parts


#1

For those who do jewelry, can you help me locate replacement parts for a piece of jewelry? My wife really likes this piece.

Here are pictures of the part needing replacement -

The screw cap is lost

Here is the screw pin

Size/Measurement

Thanks for any direction and help.

That looks like a scrapbook post. (And I’m trying to remember what they call the blasted things…there’s a special name for it…ahhhhh)

This is a cool fastener idea. There are some projects floating around for me that could use these. Thanks for posting.

Do you have a body piercing shop nearby? I bet they would have, or could get you one.

Piercing or part? :laughing::wink:

They remind me of “Chicago Screws” although I’ve never seen them that long.

Amazon search links truncate, so here it is as a bit.ly: http://amzn.to/2onQsUu

That’s it! That was the name…thanks! :relaxed:


#9

We used to use them as hinge pins on e-NABLE devices… :wink:

Home Depot or Lowe’s for shorter ones. McMaster or Grainger for all sizes or our favorite Amazon :slightly_smiling_face:

Make sure to search “binding posts” instead of “Chicago Screws” for a larger selection.

These are neat little things. Never used them but I could see them being useful in bolted connections with laser projects!

If you have a hard time finding an exact replacement, I can make one of those from scratch in about 30 minutes.

I’ll let you know. Thanks for the offer.
