Re: Harvesting rivets

Was that the one where he said he puts the x-acto blade on his tongue?
(Oh well, I guess some paper envelope edges are almost as sharp!)

It has been covered in Mainline Modeler a number of times by

Bob Hundman.

As I recall it, he simply shaves off the rivet with a very sharp blade,
taking all of the rivet and a tiny skim of side as well. I think the skim
of side helps ensure the rivet is positioned upright on the model. He
positions the rivet using a fine pointed blade (Xacto?) and a dab of saliva
to hold the rivet to the blade till it's placed. >
