I would like to share an idea with the Ganoksin Community.
The attached PDF document describes a small modification to the standard plate-style belt buckle and associated belt.
The idea is that adding a second post to a plate-style buckle obviates the need for snaps, screws or rivets to attach the belt to the buckle. Buckles with this design are more readily interchangeable among belts.
I have made and worn a number of cast bronze, cast copper and 3D printed plastic buckles based on this design.
The document is intended to provide a clear and complete explanation of the idea - more than can readily be conveyed in a forum post. The document is eight pages long, but five of those are illustrations. Hopefully the illustrations alone convey the idea.
