- Simply punch or drill a 1.6mm hole into your pieces, slide the rivet through both pieces.
- Cut excess length off the rivet end to about 1/16".
- Lay your pieces on a hard surface, preferably a rubber block and a steel bench block (available in our tools section), with the nail head facing down and the rivet end slightly protruding.
- Lightly tap, using a ball peen or chasing hammer, the rivet end so it spreads out slightly over the hole opening. Gradually increase the intensity of the hammer taps until both pieces are secure.
