Do I REALLY need a solid rivet here?
The aft most rivets (top and bottom) on the tip ribs of the elevators....
I'd so much rather put an MK-319-BS in those holes and move on than try all sorts of mediocre attempts to set a solid rivet here. I even made a special set of cut down vicegrips into a duck bill type squeezer but in some 15 practice attempts on scrap, I manage to set 1 good rivet tail. And the notion of bucking with a chisel or prybar, I don't know how some of you found success with that.
