5. The ball pein hammer is reversed and used to expand the ‘tail’ of the rivet. This may take several slight taps. At this pint the rivet cannot be removed from the plates.

6. The ball pein side of the hammer is used to form the rivet head. This takes time and should not be rushed. The head should form a dome.

   
 
   

7. The final shaping of the rivet head is formed using the rivet snap. The plate should be permanently fixed together at this stage.

 

QUESTIONS:

1. Draw a series of simple diagrams that represent the stages involved in riveting two steel plates together.
