Buy a tungsten bucking bar. The difference is truly amazing and worth every cent.

I am curious to know what people's experience was with dimpling the curved sections. Seems like the dimple die would try to straighten out the curve or at least distort it badly. Would a small diameter dimple die work better for this since it has less surface area contact?

It's not an issue.

Thanks to everyone's advice. Success!!! It really wasn't as big a deal as I anticipated. The tailcone is now done...for now. Fuselage is coming next week. QB wings will be here in October

Hi Mark,

Congrats on completing your tail cone! I was checking out your website and see your parts look fantastic, particularly the hinge brackets on your vertical stabilizer. I can't seem to find any civilized way to set the inner rivet on my rudder hinge brackets. I've tried my pneumatic squeezer but the rivet is so close to the bracket that the yoke rubs on it and causes the squeezer to twist sideways. So then I got out a bucking bar which "kind of" worked but I had to hold it so close to the bracket that it beat the living heck out it. I had to drill the rivet out twice now, and for the life of me I can't figure out how other guys seem to do these hinge brackets so cleanly. May I ask how you were able to get yours looking so nice?

Thanks!

Casey,
Thanks for the compliments. I used the pneumatic squeezer for all the rivets on the vertical stab spar and hinge brackets. If I recall I used the set in the yoke portion and the flat shop side on the moving portion of the squeezer.
