Anyone using T-Pins for toy making? How are you using them?

I thought they might be useful for small parts.

I have never seen these before.
What do you intend to do with them?
Use them to hold small parts for painting?

Cheers

They are like large straight pins. Actually they come in several sizes. These are 2 inches long (#32) the longest ones I could find. They are used by dress makers and tailors but I got the idea to use them from balsa wood modle builders who use them to hold parts together during assembly.

My first idea was to use them for painting short dowel pieces 1 inch or smaller. You could stick the pin in the end, paint them using the pin for a handle, and then hang them from a magnet to dry. One of the magnet strips they sell at Harbor Freight for hanging tools should work great for this. Using this method you could paint the entire dowel, or other small part, except for the hole where the pin is inserted.

I ordered 100 of these for $4.95 you can buy them by the pound. I found 50 pound lots of them.

You could use other pins I guess but I think these will be much easier to hold onto than a regular straight pin. The large head should make insertion and removal fairly easy.

They should be useful for some glue ups as well.
