1-Where can I find brass hardware for making handtools? Knurled nuts and dowel nuts seem tough to come by.
2-My cousin is expecting her first child next month. My wife gave me a picture of a step stool/mini seat she wants me to make for them. The design calls for a couple ~1/4 X 1 1/2” bolts to secure the backrest. I’m thinking of using brass due to the asthetic/corrosion qualities. I don’t see the backrest having to support much of a load, given the stool is intended for a small kid. Nonetheless, brass is a soft metal, and I’m wondering if it might be too soft for this application?
