Hi wow I live in the UK don't know if they have shoulder rivets here will have a search thanksPaul, you, of course, must remove the wheel from the movement, grind or file the back side of the old rivet down where it can be punched out. Then insert a new one, lay it on an anvil and pein it with a hammer until it is snug. Do not tighten enough that the click will not move. A shouldered rivet like the first one on this Timesavers page works well on this type click.

Thanks dietofnothing having a look around to see where i can buy them from cousins in the uk where i live have a set of 50 but can't get them until March 3rdI just did this one the other night (before image). It was the first time I did it too. I used a drill with a grinding stone to grind off the rivet from the top (click side). I bought a Sessions click kit from Timesavers. You get brass clicks, rivets, and springs new. The rivets were not shouldered - but that’s what I had; so it was going to work. Was not worried about grinding the click cuz was using new one. You could use a file or even drill it out if it’s brass.
Once it was ground thorough, you can pull the click off pretty easily. Then I gently tapped and pulled the old rivet out with a jeweler’s brass hammer & tiny lineman’s style jewelers pliers.
The new click’s rivet was a hair too big for the hole - so I filed the hole with a tiny round file a bit. Then you put the new click in with rivet / spring. I mushroomed the new rivet off with jewelers hammer (steel) hitting a round punch (steel) with a flat face on the rivet.
I didn’t want to use a big hammer cuz everyone says it’s so easy to make them too tight. Took about 10 hits until it was tight not too tight. Then fastened the spring and tested & it worked well.
