Wallet button snap repair and replacement...

The leather wallet had a broken button snap, so I thought I'd try and fix it myself. 

I carefully drilled out the flared bits on the other chromed snaps, since I wanted to replace them with black snaps, and after watching a couple of videos on the process, used the setter and anvil with a rubber mallet to install the new pieces.

It worked, although the new buttons require a lot of force to snap closed, but are certainly more secure...
