Metal Magic: Removing Bad Rivets


KITPLANES editor at large Paul Dye continues our Metal Magic series with a look at how to properly remove bad or damaged rivets. Hint: You’ll probably do this a lot over the course of an airplane project, so it’s worth practicing before you need to extract bad universal-head or countersunk rivets in anger.
