Re: Placing rivets

Tim,

The goal here is to space the rivet_s_ evenly. A common problem with
airplanes and railroad equipment. Was that your question?

It is not about application of singles.

But that makes me think: If a template with evenly spaced holes were
used one could fill those with a liquid rivet compound (white glue
diluted to a certain degree) to the top, wait until semi liquid and
lift off. Followed by a part melt down to form the rounded dome.
There is a kit that accomplishes this with a syringe and squeeze
bottles.

I don't get it... how do you place a single rivet using a large
template?

Placing rivets is probably as important as making them. The
aircraft
modelers use this tool:
