I stole these two drawing pins off the Lillehammer notice board. Such a great design. The pin is made from the punched out triangle. I searched for a box of new ones, as they seemed to be used everywhere...but to no avail.
Mass Production of metal pins amazes me...how can you make so many so cheap? There was a machine at a steam fair in Tabley that just cut wire to a certain length ready for pin making.. The safety pin is such a great design.
