    I also use the method that Phil uses, with great success. After riviting I use a little silver solder on the outside, for peace of mind.

    I have developed a method that uses the staking process to secure the hook.I always turn the dia. that fits thru the barrel wall (hole) a smaller dia. than the spring seat dia. I leave about .015 inch protruding from the barrel for staking.I broach and c'sk the hole so there is space for the peened metal. The secret/ trick that I have found that makes this easy is to turn a sink in the end of the hook so that the peening goes easy. I also have made custom anvils that go inside the barrel for staking.Without the sink cut into the end it is very difficult to get the metal to flow.
