Do a Google search "How to make rivets". You'll find dozens of YouTube videos and other articles on the subject.

RE: Making copper rivets

For medium quantities (>1000 pcs) of a custom rivet made from bar stock, have them produced using a swiss machine.

Cold heading.

RE: Making copper rivets

Yes you can cold head them Or you can clamp the shaft and hot forge them. Until the OP comes back and tells us why he wants to do this, I still say it is cheaper to buy them ready made, unless he lives in a country where he cannot get them.

You are judged not by what you know, but by what you can do.

RE: Making copper rivets

just upset a copper rod using a normal rivet squeeze gun.
