Today I started to rivet, well actually I did one last night, the one rivet under the nut in the first picture below.  The other three are the ones I started on today.  In the second picture I am moving right along.

      All the rivets in the pictures above are flush rivets.  Starting out today, I was careful to check my progress frequently just to make sure everything was going well. The first picture below shows the flush rivets looking good.

      The second picture, not so good.  These are the only flush rivets I had to drill out. No problem with my technique, I just didn’t position the bucking bar correctly. It wasn’t completely covering the rivet heads of these two.
