Buckle rivet replacements?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Where can I purchase screws and nuts to replace the buckle rivets? I am heat molding the boot shell; and must remove the buckles buy drilling out the rivets. These fasteners are required to reattach the buckles to the shell.

The bolts are allen head, less than a quarter inch in length, and the nuts are tubular with a flared collar. The combined assembly replaces a rivet holding the buckles to the shell skin. TIA gordo

Ask rather

What size drill bit are you using?

Don't forget the Vibra-Tite.

OK, I understand regarding drill size.

Vibra tite is like Loctite? Thread compound?
