Hinge crimper?

I have paino hinge that I used to tac weld the ends on to keep the inner rod from vibrating out. I have seen on other rigs and applications where they are like taking a heavy duty prick punch and it makes such a deep hole it hits the rod and keeps it from moving.

I am having trouble finding something that will do this. It's stainless steel. The inner rod is .250"

Thanks in advance

What's the problem with welding, I've been doing that for years, not a problem to weld stainless with regular wire either...

Welding should be fine, a center punch and a BFH should be fine, hell a pair of Vice Grips should work in a pinch.

Drill a hole through the rod, insert pin, lock pin in place ?

Yeah if it's got a .250 inner rod you've got room for a small roll pin.

Or, center punch + big hammer.

Drive the rod out. Cut off a lenght equal to one section of "hinge". Drive back in so its centered than deform both ends of hinge with a small hammer. It'll never come out. Do it all the time on m1 abrams tanks.
