I learned a lot about grommet insertion this weekend. Despite practice, I couldn’t do them correctly. I read online and followed the instructions. I bought and tried several grommet setting tools and read reviews of who’d had problems with which ones. I spent an afternoon trying to find a benchtop hand press, which I thought was the answer. I learned new terminology and Googled eyelet vs. grommet, driver, anvil, grommet inserter, hand press, bench press I learned about the sizes and that I needed size 000 also known as 5/32″ aka 3.9mm, and size 00 aka 3/16″ aka 4.7mm. I watched YouTube videos and did what they did. I thought. Then I watched more closely. I had the right tools but I’d not been holding the driver, the pounder piece, correctly, and I was being too heavy handed with the hammer. I went to the workbench and tried again. I tried with several size grommets using my different tools. Success!! Why grommets? Airholes in the hats — a must in Florida — and also for those lace up corsets Benny likes to wear.
