Brief Description:  Modify Nose Pieces on Air Riveter

The air riveter arrived yesterday so today was spend making the hookup lines and modifing the nose pieces.

Got the riveter from ??? on Ebay

Tools to modify the noses pieces: 3/8 Drill motor, Bench Vice, Die Grinder, Acorn shaped carbide bit.

Make sure you have centered the nose piece in the chuck by spining it. Put some color on the nose piece before begining the grinding. It lets you see better where the tool bit touches. Start the drill motor and lock it on, start the die grinder and touch off in the center. Use a light touch and stop to see if it is really centered. If OK continue to shape untill it is about right, then test it.

Use emory cloth to finish the surface and remove the tool marks.

NOTE: If you go to deep you can take some off the end.
