Longer posts would likely be necessary soon so the hardware store was searched for almost an hour. Brass nails were the first thing to look for but most nails were only brass coated for decoration. Thick aluminum (aluminium) nails and short copper nails were found both both were unsuitable. While wandering aluminum rivets were found which were long and made without any iron. Pointed ends of the studs were sharpened by inserting the rivet into the chuck of a drill and spinning the point on a flat file. This method put a fine cone on the end of the privet.

The printed model was sized well and the grommet fit into all the desired locations. An animated picture was made with the grommet in three different positions. Unfortunately the plastic jumps around because it was jostled between pictures. Double-sided tape should have been put down before attempting this animation. This animation was meant to mimic yesterday's animation of virtual grommet positions.

A narrated video was taken showing the spinner with the grommet. Only one take was done so when the tape accidentally released in the middle of the recording I rolled with it. The video is one minute long.
