Time: 4 Hours
The squeezer dies that I ordered from Avery Tools arrived this afternoon. They are a 1/8″ flush and a thin 1/8″ cupped die. I needed these to give me the clearance to properly squeeze the rivets.
I see a lot of other builders posting photos of them actually working on their RV’s so I thought I would do the same. I just downloaded an app on my iPhone that has a camera timer, propped up the phone and started riveting. Here are a couple of me looking like I know what I’m doing!
I learned a valuable lesson today: you always need to re-adjust your squeezer settings, the amount that the rivet is squeezed, when you change what you’re riveting! I went from the stiffeners to the first hinge brackets without adjusting and squeezed the first rivet way too much!
