A simple step by step method of selecting the correct Cherry Rivet for any job
Example: The job to be riveted has two pieces of material with a total thickness of 5/16" (8mm).
Step 1 Decide which head style and rivet type is best. For example Truss Head Plugged type see chart 1
Step 2. Select the most suitable rivet for the job (assume Aluminium) see chart 2
Step 3. Select the type of material for the rivet stem (presume for this job steel would be best) see chart 3
Step 4. Choose the most suitable rivet size for the job considering the strength required For example 3/16" (4.8mm) diameter see chart 4
Step 5 Measure the thickness of the material to be riveted In this example it is 5/16" (7.9mm) see chart 5
Using these steps we found out that:
- Type=Truss Head Plugged Rivet Code = 73
- Rivet Material - Aluminium Code = A
- Stem material: steel Code = S
- Rivet diameter Code = 6
- Material THickness 5/16" (8mm) Code = 5
The correct Cherry Rivet for this job would be 73-A-S-6-5
