Okay! I rang the unfriendly shop
and got the most friendly
woman on the phone so that'll teach me for lumping the whole lot of shop assistants in together
The snap press tool is $2.40 and snaps are $3.30 for 6 or $5.60 for 15 nickel ones. They also have a proper snap servive in the back which could be good for the odd thing I need snapping (apparently the press snap tool only really handles light weight materials) and they charge around $1 per snap of various sizes/colours.
Must have changed staff since I was in last LOL.
Thanks for all the help every one. I'll try this tool and just see how I go
