In drilling out rivits from the peened over end,,
the rivit will part off and stick to the drill,,,,usually,
making a small washer,, the drill has NOT gone through the band,,just touched it,,
Now tap the rivit through with a small punch,,,[ or nail ]
The split rivits spoken of the other day were an invention made to reline model T Ford transmisson bands without taking the steel bands out,,!!!
Just drive the rivit through the cotton web,,til it bucks up on the steel drum and the rivit will part ways left/right and secure?? the mess,,,,,,There is a volume of T shortcuts,
You either like Ts or not,,,dont say I said so,,
