How did you get the gun past the routing angles for the inboard baggage bay ribs? I’m thinking of reversing the rivet here as I can’t see a good way to have the manufactured head on the rib side. Would that be acceptable?

I was able to finagle the double offset rivet set around/through the angles as necessary to obtain access. I used a Taylor 2x rivet gun for my entire build. A 3x gun might also fit, depending on the length of the double offset rivet set.



Here's a pic of that process when I riveted those together. You can see the gun laying below the idler pulley.



Requires a different hold on the rivet gun, however it's quite controllable.

Thanks, but my gun butts directly up against the routing angle. The 2X gun must be a bit shorter.

You can obtain 5", 7" and 10" long double offset sets for those AN470AD4-4s. Maybe one of those would let a 3x gun fit in there.

Relative to rivet direction, there have been a number of threads on the topic. An example of a helpful one is here. Read the whole thread to appreciate opinion, practical considerations and legitimate guidance.

Default RV14 Rotisserie?

Hi Dan ...
Could please post some photos of your rotisserie?
Maybe talk about how you made it?

I wanted to build one for my RV9a and RV7 construction but never got around to it ...

What worked for me is building up the fuselage from the firewall back on a rotisserie.
