I'm sure that if Bill reads this he can tell you where to get the proper METRIC pin stock. Peening the ends is something that only comes with practice, but a very light [jewelers] hammer helps. Short sharp taps are best. There is a tool called a pin spinner [I think] that goes in a drill and lets you round the ends Koval knives or Jantz supply would be good places to try to find one.
