    Most anything heavy and will fit. A big hammer works.

      If you are relining the brake shoes, clamp a punch in the vise and use that to buck the rivet. Find a punch the same diameter as the rivet head.

          You can borrow it for free..... it does a perfect job without having to hammer on the hood.

        Rivet question
        by wrndln
        I am in the process of installing the rivets in the sub frame/floorpan/seat frame of my 29 CCPU. I am using 7/16" long 3/16" diameter brazier head rivets. I am setting the rivets cold with a waffle tool in a CP 3X rivet gun. These rivets are long enough for all but 2 of the places rivets are required. I can't find any longer brazier head rivets after looking high and low – Big Flats Rivet...

        Waffled rivets
        by Steve Plucker
        Why did Ford use the Waffle type stamping of rivets in places where a domed rivet would of worked just the same?

        Riveting steel rivets
        by Steve Plucker
        What is the rule of thumb when it comes to riveting steel rivets?

        If I were riveting a 1/4 inch diameter steel rivet to connect two pieces of metal together...would/should the shank of the rivet that is protruding out of the hole be 1-1/2 times the diameter of the 1/4 inch rivet? In other words the length of the shank of the rivet protruding out of the hole should be 3/8 inch in length?...

        Hi..., and I apologize to those of you who wanted more information about this after I posted a few weeks ago--I'm not as good as I should be on checking for notifications, and I'll try to do better!

        Shifting fork rivet instalation...
        by Steve Plucker
        I have assembled my transmission gearshift tower and am ready to install the rivets that go into the shifting forks.

        My hands and fingers are to darn big to put those rivets in from the top to the bottom.

        Is there a more simple way of doing it? I had forgot this procedure was a little hard to do!

        Thanks.

        Pickup bed rivets
        by Steve Plucker
        Has any body restored a Model A pickup bed?

        The rivets used are unlike those used on the frame and other like items in relation the the head of the rivet.

        Ones used on the frame and such have a somewhat more rounded head than those on the pickup bed.

        That being the case...where can I get rivets that are correct to rivet items to the bed to make it more original...

        Visor bracket rivets
        by Art Ebeling
        Today I tried to attach the sunvisor to the brackets for my Victoria using the tubular rivets supplied by Lebaron Bonney. The rivets are too short to go thru both the visor and the bracket. Not enough rivet to roll over. The rivet measures 5/16 in length which is the same thickness as the visor without the bracket. All I accompished was to scratch the plating on the bracket and squish the visor....

        Installing mat rivets (or whatever they are called)
        by wrndln
        In the past I have had a tough time installing the currently available "mat" rivets shown in the picture below. First the part that goes into the heavy 16 gauge cross sill and subrail extensions barely extend beyond the underside of metal they go in - i.e. not enough to properly roll the end of the rivet over. Second, even if I try to use a semi-tubular setting tool, the top part where...

        Riveting brake tracks
        by BNCHIEF
        I have riveted brake tracks using a air hammer but not an actual rivet gun, i am curious has anyone ever tried to rivet the tracks by using a rivet tool in a drill press? Heat the rivet red and roll it down. Or turn the air pressure way down on a air chisel.
