    I have been trying to get the 2.5mm rivets but I am finding it difficult to get a minimum order quantity from the company who makes them. I am going to have one last try . I do know that members have used the 2mm rivets although I imagine that the the soldering could be tricky

    Bob is right in that you can use the plastic chairs. It does use more solvent as the ply soaks it up and it takes a little longer to grab. I have used this method successfully

    I was told the ideal way is to coat the sleepers in the solvent you buy from diy stores for plastic waste pipes will make the whole bond stronger
