What is the tool called to both install them and to polish them. Thanks so much for your thoughts.
Olympic rivets can be installed with an ordinary pop rivet tool.
They are cut down with a "shaver".
There is no tool that polishes them.
For Airstream work, there is only one size Olympic rivet that is used.
