Brief Description: Riveting the Stiffeners to the Rudder Skin
I finished back riveting the stiffeners to the rudder skin. The new back rivet set from Cleveland works much better than the one from Brown Tool. I did have some trouble with two of the rivets near the bend line. Both of them ended up sitting proud when I was done riveting them. I tried to drill them out but they didn’t come out very well. I ended up drilling out the holes to #30 and putting AN470AD4-4 rivets in those holes. They came out well but I’m still thinking about ordering a new rudder skin and stiffeners and trying this again. We’ll see how the bend goes.
