How I attach pinbacks to my carved pins...

Since I've started making pins, I've been using 5 minute epoxy buttered on the back of the pinback and I apply that to the back of the pin. I cut a gouge to allow the epoxy to make direct contact to the wood. No pressure, no clamps. Just make sure the epoxy oozes through the holes on the pinback. Then I let it sit overnight.

I've had pins break but never had the pin come off the wood yet.
