DIY tool for cold rivets?
New here. I don't own an airstream, but someone from the International Harvester Scout forums thought this might be a more appropriate audience to ask my question.
I recently bought some copper (rounded heads) and small nickel looking (not nickel, not sure what, flat head) solid cold rivet style rivets for a project inside my rig - I also bought some tubular rivets as well. I like the look of these rivets far better than the crappy pop rivet style. The rivets I got are basically for cosmetic, though they should offer some support. Anyways, I have been looking online and I'm not sure what tool I need - perhaps a bucking bar to hold the finished end, but what is need for smashing the other end down to give either a flat or round head look? Also, any way to DIY the tool for both the solid and tubular style rivets? Cash is kind of tight. Thanks!!
