Name plate rivets

Postby Mr.pacojack » Tue Aug 25, 2009 2:09 am

I got sick of the rivets that come with the name plates you order so I started using copper belt rivets, they work great and you can get them at most hardware stores.

I just bought some extra nameplates for when other folks run their dogs on my ranches, That way if someone finds our dog they know what ranch to bring them back to. My point is that they shorted my the rivets. I was just wondering what I could use instead. Thanks for the info...

One other thing that you can use is a small flat head bolt (Allen Head) and a nylock nut. I use size 10-32 or 1/4-20 and just long enough to put the nut on so none of the bolt sticks out. I have some collars that the name tag has been on for 15 years. The brass tag will wear out before that plate comes off. You can get them at any hardware store for pennies.

What type of collars last that LONG?

home made dog collars

Postby Dan V » Thu Sep 03, 2009 11:09 pm

Here are some home made dog collars that I finished last month. Nothing fancy at all. I built them with a pocket knife, a hole punch and my horse shoeing out fit to set the rivets. I have been under-welmed with the quality of leather on some store bought leather collars that I have ordered in the past. They seem to be made of pretty flanky leather that really stretches. As far as the products to make them, I went to a local saddle shop and picked up a 8 foot section of 1 inch wide harnass leather, and I got the buckles and rings from another saddle shop. The next ones I build, I'm just going to swipe the hardware off of old collars and re-use it.

Those are very nice Dan. How much do you figure they cost you to make? No Doubt they will be worth it even if they cost a little extra they should last a long time. Thanks for sharing

I think they were around 10-12 bucks a piece. No real savings, but the ring should never wear out. And looking at old buckles on dog collars, most of them seem to be in good shape. The cost goes way down if you reuse your hardware. Then you are only into it for the price of the leather and the rivets (which are real cheap). I bought a little bit larger ring for these collars than what is on the store bought collars; because the leather I used was thicker than the nylon on the old collars and I needed more room to fold the leather back onto it's self.

I'm going to make some collars out of betathane. I have been using betathane for the last few years as driving lines on my work harness. Its tough and has no stretch to it. I'll let you know how it works. If anyone has tried this let us know.
