Thanks guys, thinking about this today I wonder if keeping the pin straight NOT tapered would hold better, the thought is that there would be more material surface contact between the pin and the place it is inserted into, at least a even force of holding (if that makes sense). along with Pauls suggestion about roughing it up a bit(at least at the part that will be in the brass) might be onto something here. I will do some experimentation soon if I dont go crazy before then, William
