Well, Bronze with stainless pins and screws can be done without any investment extra.
I only need to source bronze 3mm plate, and 8mm plate I think it is for Isofrane tangs. Draw the parts and cut them out. Bronze is easy to finish as well, so once Terry has a heap of buckles over there, I will turn my attention to Ti and Bronze plate.
Is Bronze still on the agenda? I'd love one in 22mm.
Yes, but I had forgot about it a little.
I was thinking how I could do it with Stainless pins, but I would likely have to have Bronze pins, rollers supplied and make the rest. Stainless screws.
It would look odd I think, if I used SS pins and screws and roller with only Bronze sides and tang, then it would look ill thought out.
The only issue, is the cost of those pins, min order is high as they are bespoke and would there then be a market for more than 1 or 2 buckles. ?
