JOINING PLATES WITH RIVETS - 2

V. Ryan 2004

 

4. The plates are pushed over the rivet and in order to ensure that there are no gaps between them a rivet set is pushed pushed down, over the rivet's shaft. The rivet's shaft fits inside a small hole at the base of the rivet set. The rivet set is made from hardened steel as it is tapped at the top with a ball pein hammer. This closes any gap between the two plates.

   
 
   

A ball pein hammer is used to tap the plates together. If this is not done, the plates may be move slightly, even after a series of rivets have been hammered in position.
