What kind of rivet is this?

For the most part my trailer(1963 SilverStreak) is assembled with this type of rivet. Can anybody recognize what type it is from the pic? Thanks

MS20470ADX-X
first X is the diameter of the shank in 1/32" increments
second X is the length of the shank in 1/16" increments

Kip,

Thanks, is the part number universal or a particular vendor? Are these what I have seen referred to as 'buck' rivets. I had not noticed the dimple in previous pics. Thanks again, Michael

The part number is universal and these rivets need to be bucked. Measure the diameter of the head and I can get close to the rivet diameter. Then how many layers of skin and internal structure and I can get you close on the length.

Normally a dimple on the rivet head indicates it is a hard rivet. More strength when properly bucked.

Here's the measurement

Head of rivet is .32 and material is 2 to 3 sheets. For reference how much longer than the thickness of the material being riveted should the rivet be?

The recipe for the length is CL + 1.5D, where CL is the clinch length (thickness of material) and D is the diameter of the stem.

For 5/32", 1.5D is .234". Add three thickness of .032 metal, and you have .33", or 5 length.

What type of drill bit are you using? A cobalt 135 degree split tip bit at approx 3000 rpm works well. if you a using a cordless drill and a cheap 82 degree twist drill, then they can be a problem.

Using an electric drill but probably only about 2000 rpm. Are you using an air drill?
