    Not a strapmaker, but I think that they can be found on Ali Express. They usually sell in lots of hundreds or thousands for very cheap price.

    Re: Question for strapmakers

    Thy're called Chicago Bolts and can be found in some hardware stores or Home Depot.

    Problem is. Not designed for straps due to length of even the smallest ones.

    I built a jig and used my dremel tool to cut the screws down and then file the nit down. Will then need to clean up rough edges

    If you don't want the work. Jurgen watch parts sells them. He had them custom made for straps

    Here's the strap I did
