old contribution on installing rivets

Post by ontosman » Thu Mar 23, 2017 8:32 am

I remember a great contribution from a member on using rivets. Can anyone lead me to that article? It covered rivet tools and supplies. I knew I should have copied it when I saw it.

An overview link:

3x rivet gun kits available from aircraft tool supply, aircraft spruce or on amazon.

I'd suggest a rivet remover tool w/extra drill bits too.
For rivets with popped/corroded heads, those can be free drilled carefully, or from the backside, twist out the 'shop head' formed head with screw remover pliers, like Vampliers.

Thanks. My Mite is infected with a number of "pop rivets". They really look bad after you first notice them. Mike

You can go to my picture site at imageevent.com/leonardnettles and look at the M422 file. There you will find all the information that I posted regarding Rivets.
