I am looking for some brass tacks to finish a project . Something that looks a bit like a 'drawing pin' or 'thumb tack', but that is actually brass. Does anyone here know a good supplier in the UK, or EU? Most of the 'brass' tacks seemed to be 'coloured' or plated. I could imagine the coating wearing off, rust setting in, and the result being disappointing.

My apologies if this is not the right place for this query - mods feel free to delete or move it.

Thanks in advance for any help

Wow, that is a very good offer although far more than I need. It would be greedy to take them all for such a small project. Fourty or fifty would be more than I need, including a safety margin (and practice).

If you would be prepared to send me some, then I will insist on reimbursing you for postage and 'time and trouble'. Should we take this to PMs?

Thanks

Thank you to Chris, I now have exactly what I was after.

Chris: It was very kind of you to take the trouble. PM me details and I will send payment - at least for the postage, please. Otherwise please nominate a charity and I will make a contribution.
