Default shave bits

I don't know if you are aware but you can purchase a rivet shave bit for your microstructure countersink. I have used the shaver many times including my fuel tanks. Just let the sealant cure for a few months before shaving. Practice on some scrap first. High rpm works the best. Use an air drill or high rpm corder drill, not a battery powered drill.

Shavers work great, no need to fear them.
