Anybody know a source of this type of building board pins? I have tried EZ Built and Volare but they do not list them as a product. Many thanks in advance.

Tom,
        They look like the pins that Flitehook sell. I purchased a box from them about 2 years ago.

I got some from Hobby Lobby International In Nashville.  Same place for UHU glue and Sologin double edge blades that work great in razor planes.

Wow! Ask and ye shall receive as the saying goes...... Many thanks guys. The Hobby Express version is the type I hope my old ones are and, in fact, they advertise that the pin shank is bent 90 degrees inside the head which is BIG. The Midwest brand pins I also have and they ain't worth crap as the shanks go loose with wear----or at least the ones I got a long time ago did. Thanks again to all.

The pins I have from Lee Campbell have that same feature.
I had to crush/break one to verify. NEVER had one fail during use.

For big surfaces I'm using magnets, however small areas have me back to pink high density foam board. If anyone uses pink board do they prefer to use "t"head pins or the very thin glass ball top quilting pins?

Tom,

FAI Model Supply (faimodelsupply.com) sells "Super Modeling Pins" in a variety of colors. Great pins---thin and very sharp. They come in a really nice plastic storage box with sliding top. A box of 50 pins is $5.50.  Order a few pounds of rubber while you are at it.

Not quite the same thing .. but? I use these.. since 1980 actually
https://www.amazon.com/Moore-Push-Pin-Aluminum-Push-Pins-4-100/dp/B0096YOU3E/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=moore+push+pins&qid=1555347827&s=gateway&sr=8-4
I also use Sheetrock as building boards for which these Ali pins are Perfectly suited. 
Cast in pins  are well stuck into their ali heads . I've only pulled out One.. since 1980
Indestructible, not easily lost and their large heads make for v nice clamp action for bits onto the board surface.
Not conceivable that one would perforate wood with them tho

Graupner has these from the first post, called "Sto├čnadeln" - "Push Pins", item# 717. Been using them for ages. They are hardened, break now and then but in general they work very well.

For really fine work, I use accupuncture needles! They are so thin and sharp, you can push'em through a 3/32 square stick without splitting it!
