Casting a ton of these falcon respirator mask strap mounts.

So I've been tinkering a bit and keep switching from making a custom to going down ANH corridor.
Its amazing what you can find or develop to fit in a pile of junk in the tool shed (Cellar)

My question is..on the graflex where the contact holes are..

What have people used to replicate the brass nut/contacts.
I've found small nuts and was thinking of using a cut down dome headed nail, I used to have a jar of very small screws but can't seem to find them..
You used to be able to source these type items but since most electrical shops have closed its so much harder.

I do miss rummaging through bins of nuts n bolts..

Here's my current workbench project (not started a thread of my own yet, but I'll get to it soon I'm sure)...
I was gifted a clay casting of the face from a mold with lineage to the original, so what I've been doing is sculpting the forehead, ears, lips, neck, etc... but leaving the brow, eyes and nose as untouched as possible.

This is more as a three month journal post, of what was on my workbench.

Starting with adding some additional weathering to my buried hope.

The next project was an RPK custom 3.5 v2 kit, scored from the RPF junkyard.

Trooper Trent stencils, Slothfurnace card. Awesome stuff to play with.
Swapped out the mystery chunk and knob, courtesy of DaveP productions.

A DaveP ROTJ hero. Also acquired from the RPF junkyard.

Took a couple tries to get the paint finish I wanted to match the aged tri-ring.

And last, but not least. Another Obi wan.

RussRep’ steel grenade and booster combined with Roman’s balance pipe and pommel. Not sure where the clamp, bubbles or transistors are from, I got all three from the junkyard from the same fella that sold me the grenade and booster. Thank you, Chris. And Russ and Roman.

Have a great weekend, everybody! Cheers!
