HMT Rivet Drilling Process - If Busting the Rivet Head
- If using a Pneumatic Rivet Buster, a flat/chisel point should be placed against the rivet head, and the repeated blows will detach the head from the rivet.
- Consideration should be given to operator HAVS exposure & other hazards associated with rivet busting such as manual handling, air hose precautions & guarding against flying/dropped rivet heads.
- Alternatively, it is possible to core drill entirely through the rivet head.
