any idea on machine or method to achieve the two grommet holes on he top of these signs? eyelet
a drill might get you there fairly quickly..
I have a large punch so the holes will not be a problem but they have a brass eyelet or grommet in the holes that is what I am talking about.
looks like a collar inserted then flared out? Same on both sides of the sign?
Go to Home Depot and buy a grommet starter kit. It will contain everything you need to put grommets in the two holes you make with your hole punch. With grommets left over to do some practicing beforehand or other nifty projects for later on. Directions come with the kit, so you should be good to go.
Do you.... or a cousin of yours, have a thread going about a Cub Scout sign ??
Without a better picture, they don't look like standard grommets.
I, too, noticed that right away and figured the OP was just trying to save time and money and substitute a grommet instead. The grommet should work. Based on the size and looks of the sign and nature of it's intended use, grommets should be totally adequate.
No not trying to save time I want to mimic that tiny eyelet. I have grommet press. but thinking it would damage the aluminum and they ant them like the picture.
I don't have one to look at I am trying to get more info as in thickness also. the supplier ordering the does not have one either as they ship direct to the end user.
Pre-punch or pre-drill the hole and put the grommet in and punch it with your grommet press. I do it all the time. BTW Poly-metal (max-metal) you can just run through a grommet machine without pre-drilling the holes, .040 not.
Thanks I will try a standard grommet and see if they accept it. Thanks All.
