: I'm working on a project that requires short 1/4" diameter metal pins.
: They'd be similar to shelf pins, but without that flattened end on
: which the shelf rests. Basically, short 1/4" diameter cylinders, no
: more than a half inch to three-quarters of an inch in length, brass or
: stainless steel. None of the big supply stores seem to carry anything
: like these. Any suppliers who can provide these?
: In case you're wondering, the project is a set of barrister bookcases
: as described in a book of bookcase designs. The doors have channels in
: the sides, and they ride on these pins. Very neat design.
A good hardware store should have 1/4" rod of various metals. Buy one
and make your own pins.
