What is the radius used on a riveting tool.

I built a riveting tool and all I had was a 1/2" ball nose end mill. The rivets I installed do not look that same as the left side. Do I need to use a 3/4" ball nose? Thanks

Couldn't tell you what the radius is brother - knock the LSP rivets out and do that side too. Not necessary from a structural perspective but I had to have the same rivets on both sides:D
when I built my jig if I remember it was .250 in diameter and the height was .100 This gave me nice half moon heads with the BB rivets. But to each there own as some guys have gone other routes and other shapes and styles on the rivet heads. Good Luck-blkbd
