Rivets


Ed Schleyer
 

During the early 1900's, the PRR used a rivet that went into a 13/16"
hole. Does anyone know what size the Rivet was, or is?
Of all the drawings of the "sills" that I have had a chance to see,
there is NO reference to size of rivet. By 1950's standards, the rivet
would be 1/32" smaller than the hole. Doesn't seem that there would be
that many nonstandard rivets made.
