At the size you are talking about, they all seem to be one size, but at that price, buying several in different sizes shouldn't break the bank.

then again, to make rivets a dab of liquid greenstuff in a small blob actually looks great.
I use wood glue
Anyway, You may try to "sculpt" circles in putty, simply by dabbing putty with small pipe
Also small metal washers, just fill hole inside and push out when ready.
You can even go hardcore and use "straighten" syringe needles.

I bought a rotary one too and it was horrible. Went back to cutting up rod. It's honestly not any slower.
I second this. Cutting rod works pretty well. Fortunately I found a good supplier of plastic rod at a local railroad hobby store.

Either that's a typo for 1/32 or you did double check your measurements and you really do mean 3 thou (in which case you're probably looking at a syringe ). Have you thought about going the water filter route? Haven't tried it myself but the Forgeworld Masterclass book reckons that you can get them with 'millions of very small balls' which 'vary in size but most are under 1mm in diameter'.
Thank you Elaric! But isn't 1/16" 1.5mm?? I think that 1/322 is more what I am after.

for pics and this might be better for you
As for the tiny riveitz I'm sure I posted it in the past but it myst be one of thone little gems now hidden in the depth of the forum. So here we go again
The punch is made from the head of a 0.5mm mecanical pen. I sharpened the tip using a dremel and a file. After that all you have to do is make an handle (brass tube in that case) and there you go. You can make hundreds of rivitz in no time using a little 0.25mm plasticard sheet.
