Flint Spatula (Turner) Rivets

I had a spatula that separated due to broken rivets. I love these old style spatulas (turners). I wish I knew where to get new ones made of thin spring steel. I buy them whenever I see them at yard sales.spat02
Some stainless rod turned down for a rivet. spat03
Checking with the spatula blade for fit. spat04
The handle has a larger hole than the blade. spat05
Parting off. I made them a little long, next time I’ll leave them shorter.spat06
Much peening later. It would have been less work if there was less rivet and the holes were the same size.
This is the brand. I think they were bought out by Ecko. You can buy them on Ebay for $15-$20, less if you’re patient.
Notice I made a few dings…well a dented spatula is better than no spatula.
