Default What blind rivet did you use here?

There is a really tough to access rivet. Many folks online have said they either had a really nasty buck, or they blind riveted it.

I'm curious what blind rivet you used if you went that route. The grip is pretty long, so I think I can only use a cherry (can't use a Mk-319). I want to confirm if the NAS1097 cherry is the right one to use (considering its a 3/32 hold that is dimpled for a 426-3).

Thanks!

Depending on the grip range required, you could use a MK-321BS.

I don't have a rivet gauge yet, but I think its a bit bigger than that. Closer to 0.125 to 0.15 I think.

Ask a mechanic to let you borrow his rivet gauge.

@Larco Correct, but that is for a 0.25 in max grip I think, I'm curious was the min grip is.

That is also for a larger 120 deg dimple. The initial hole size is 3/32 with a 100deg dimple for a 3/32 rivet.

The CS4-4 expects a dimple that is similar to a #30 hole, but at 120 deg.

Thanks for the suggestions though.

My guess is that I will need to use one of the NAS1097 1/8 cherrys.

@Ethanol1 - Not that I know of, but I'm newer to Marion, mostly lived in CR. But I know who Bill Reed is .

I remember that area being a real bugger to buck. With 2 people it is doable. Having a small tungsten bucking bar helps get in the tight areas and still provides some weight behind it.

Yeah I usually have two people. I also have a small tungsten bar (I have a few) but it still just doesn’t quite fit right. Thanks though!

May be too late but I recall backriveting those stiffeners on the bench before installing.
