Any sources on the internet for some good basic information on riveting solid rivets ?


Length of rivet ?
Shaft size ?
Cutting to size ?
Squeezing
etc
etc
etc


I have Tony B's books... nothing really about riveting in any of the three.


I started wading through all the information on www.rivetbangers.com Good source, but it's taking a while to read through all those threads for some basics.


Any guidance would be much appreciated.


thanks
