Messing about with copper pop rivets again. This time on a half inch Calvin. A last minute tie for the weekend if any rain ever materialises 😂

What do you line them with to avoid the sharpe edges ? I just shrink down some 1.5mm shrink tube and shove it inside but its not ideal.

I'm not at home at the moment to look but I think it is the smallest flexible liner that fly makers do.

XS eumur fitted too but a bit of a gap between it and the tube. I hadn't a needle thick enough to hold the rivet without a liner attached
