Default Advice-Vertical stabilizer

some of the rivets are folded over slightly..... all are within specs, but I don't like how all of them "look." Not expecting perfection, but also don't want to miss something.

Thanks

Not perfect but look fine as long as they are in spec .. and nobody will see them .. as long as you can live with it build on!

I don't know anything about the Numatx but mine (Cleveland Tool) has a cam in it so the last bit of travel is kind of a "snap" which really gets the shop heads looking nice once you get the hang of it.

At least you put them in the right direction, I ended up drilling a good bit of mine out to reverse .. oops .. seems like a long time ago but was just April!

Not familiar with that squeezer, but mine gets the best results when they are squeezed at full speed, and always use the max PSI of 90. I have an inline flow restrictor that can be adjusted also if I need to come up on it slower.

Those don't look bad, but with a little trial and error I'm sure you'll figure it out.

You can use a C frame with the longer back riveting tool available from Cleaveland. They will all be consistent then. It was a tip from another builder and it works really nicely.
