  • Rivet nomenclature

    For olde-school rivets in which the rivet is peened down against a separate ring, ... What's that ring called? A washer?

    I'm going out on a limb, but they are called a washer and you are going to use it on a 'solid' rivet.

    I googled and these guys have the parts and description of rivets.

        They're "burrs" (or "burs.)

          The same thing is called a 'rove' if it's a boatbuilding nail rather than a rivet.

            Note the taper on the end of the rivet. The bur is intended to be an interference fit on the rivet shank. To set it before bucking it you need a bucking bar with a hole drilled in it to just fit the rivet shank. The bur is stuck on the end of the rivet and the rivet is driven into the bur to tighten up the material. Then the end of the rivet is clipped so that 1 to 1.5 diameter protrudes from the bur and then it is set so that the bucked head is between .5 to .75 diameter thick.
