Good Morning all, I've read the 1919 build tutorial numerous times now preparing for my build. In the tutorial it references a riveting tutorial but I can not find it on here. Do any of you have it in PDF form or some other media that you could email?
While not exactly a 'guide,' there's lots of good thoughts and ideas in this thread: http://1919a4.com/showthread.php?41323-1919-rivet-notes&highlight=riveting+guide. What we need to see are such things as how to avoid the mooning on my sideplate, should I heat my rivets, can I make my own, should I use a press, where can I get a "Plinker's Jig," do I need an air compressor and do I really need one, what resources for rivets and tools are available and where, etc..
I DO wish someone who knows how would put this information together and make it 'sticky' so we wouldn't be going this question in such generalities repeatedly. Who's up for this, now that Lobo's not around o much anymore? What we need is all these things on one place, one thread, presented as a tutorial or a sticky.
I have a pdf of pictures showing a riveting guide. They are from way back when welding was a requirement, but show pretty good procedures. If you are interested shoot me an email and I'll send it to you Gary.
