"solid" rivets (the ones that need a bucking bar to be held on the back side) can be intimidating if you are not familiar with the relevant tools and techniques. As compared to blind rivets which are relatively easy to work with, solid rivets need a little practice and some specialized tools.
Once the confidence in setting these rivets is acquired, the opportunity for building a
greater variety of fast, sleek aircraft becomes possible (For example, the majority of Vans aircraft models are predominantly built with solid rivets).
Our popular DVD: "
RV Rudder Workshop" demonstrates and explains the basic techniques and tools for working with solid rivets. As an example of putting these skills to work, a rudder for the Vans RV7 is built in a step by step presentation. You cannot get a better preview and understanding of what it takes to build a Vans aircraft with this informative DVD.
