Without damaging the smock, i wear one for shooting on the weekends, the rattle is starting to annoy me.

Use a drill (slightly larger than the hole in the middle) on the slowest speed and VERY carefully drill out the middle of the stud.

Why a slow speed ? if they are brass a high speed would be better than slow to reduce "grabbing " would it not ?

I have found that doing it slowly often prevents me going too far. Indeed when I have done it in the past it has been without the aid of an electric drill. It works for me.

Slow speed means if it catches you can stop and not wrap the smock around the drill bit.

It's a fine line between rape and murder, glad you've got it in hand.

Press stud?

They are pressed together so they should split apart again if you slip the wire cutting jaws of a pair of pliars between the two halves of the stud that make up the male and female parts of the popper.

Drill them out and I bet you end up with the bit grabbing the cloth and ruining it.

Or save the effort and go and buy a new jacket that actualy keeps out anoying things like rain and wind.

Tripe.

As said, drill out the centre very carefully, and resign yourself to breaking a couple of bits regardless.

It's not ******* tripe as used to sell the fixings, they start life in two halves and can be split apart again.

In fact IIRC you can even buy a tool that splits them.

But oooh no lets break out the power tools instead.
