Attaching pins to a broach
I have an idea for a design for a broach, but I know that glue does not work well with HDPE so i am trying to come up with a way of attaching a pin.
Has anyone got any suggestions about ways to attach broach pins to HDPE?
You might try just the self adhesive pin backs like these. https://www.hobbylobby.com/Beads-Jewelry/Jewelry-Findings/Apparel-Accessory/Self-Adhesive-Pin-Backs—37mm/p/105659
That’s what I used on the large (~70mm) buttons I made last year. https://i0.wp.com/davehakkens.nl/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Buttons-2-s.jpg?ssl=1 There is one hanging over my computer and it has not come off.
Otherwise, there have been posts on heat welding HDPE that might be applicable.
