Brief Description:  riveting rod ends

Riveted rod ends to aileron/bellcrank control rods. Rods had previously been cut and primered. I had heard stories that this may not go too well. Van's rivet callout was AN470AD4-12's, which is too long - went with 11's. (Rod dia. .508", plus .125"+.062"= .695". The 4-11 rivet measures .687") Squeezed with the Tatco between a cupped set and a flat set until almost set, then switched to two cupped sets and finished setting. Great results!
