I have to replace the bulk head on my Firecat--bent it this past winter--insurance covered it. Insurance would have totaled the sled but I told them I would repair it. Got a new bulkhead and 300 rivets.HAHAHA, but I made you post!!
Got your sled all wrapped up for the season? I have to take mine apart. gas leak again....It's coming from the installation of my electric gas guage. Done by the dealer.
I hope you have a pnuematic rivet gun. The top to my trailer was 1000 rivets. Aluminumrivets isn't so bad, but trying to hold something together, while squeezing a handle, the parts move and imperfection begins to show. I have a 33 gal compressor, but no rivet gun yet. I had to borrow. Let me know if you need a hand, I'd be willing to help.
SS rivets, get a pnuematic rivet gun. Way to hard to pop.
I here you on price. I just picked up a package of three pnuematic nailer today at Sears plus I bot another $25 rebate for the purchase. Total $145 for all three. One is a stapler, 2nd Brad nailer and 3rd is a finished nailer. Now I can do a lot more wood work more quickly vs screwing everything together.
What do you have for a compressor? I bought the Craftmans up right with 6HP. Just enough juice for my Impact and rachet. My cutting wheel does its share of eating up air as well.
