  learning more about rivets today
  Posted by: melenas on Nov-05-12 5:50 PM (EST)
 

than in all previous days of my life combined, but still
getting lost in that fascinating world. For example, below I list some options
on the McMaster-Carr high-strength aluminum blind rivets (which only come in
"domed for wide thickness ranges"):



Domed for Wide Thickness Ranges—Aluminum

Material
Thickness Head
Range Length Dia.

3/16" Dia.—For Hole Size: 0.191"-0.201" (Drill Size #11)
0.062"-0.27" 0.415" 0.385"
0.062"-0.437" 0.572" 0.385"

1/4" Dia.—For Hole Size: 0.261"-0.272" (Drill Size F)
0.08"-0.375" 0.56" 0.525"
0.08"-0.625" 0.81" 0.525"

I assume the material thickness range means the combined (vinyl) inwale and
(Royalex) hull, but I don't know how much that is, nor do I know what hole size
or length I should choose. Can anyone advise?


For what it's worth, they also have "Blind Rivets for Soft and Brittle
Materials" for attaching "plastic and fiberglass"---anyone ever used those?
