Re: [BKARTS] Book Clasps



Another "easy" way to make them is out of flat brass stock which can be cut
and filed with jewelers saw, tin snips, boardshear, and files. "Rivets" are
made out of brass nails which can be filed flat until almost invisible. An
example of clasps I made this way can be seen at
<http://www.philobiblon.com/examples/clasp2.jpg>.  Another source (of ideas
or the real thing) is Buchbinder Müller at
<http://www.mueller-buch.de/bbset.htm>. Links to images are at the top.
