My old pop rivet dimple dies are shot and never worked well for my RV7. I have no idea what brand they are but they look like super cheap junk. They are all rusted up and not worth trying to save them.

That being said, I am either going to order some from ACS who claim they are old Avery stock or some from Cleveland.

The question is:

Are there any cases where you really need a 1/8" pop rivet dimple tool on the RV10? To be honest I don't remember ever using the 1/8" one on the 7 and have a hard time imagining anywhere you would need one on the 10???

I would like to spend that $25-$30 bucks somewhere else if I don't really need them.

Thanks!

Brian C.

I don’t remember ever pulling out that die for the 10.

I've used it a lot. Great for when you forgot to dimple something before assembly, or you make a change to the design. I used it when installing the Van's kit for the landing lights because I didn't have a deep enough yoke for a squeezer to reach.

Yea, not required but can be useful in a few cases.

Specifically the 1/8” version?

I already bought a replacement 3/32 one that I know I will need.
