Bernie,
What were the shaft and hole diameters of the pivot and staff? Was the hole drilled and reamed or just drilled? Was the part machined in the Taig with the ER collets or in the Boley?
If you make a new flag and the two parts are brass it might save a lot of time if you solder the two parts together with soft solder (you can use a torch) instead of making rivets. The process should be similar to soldering copper plumbing pipe.
