Today I have, with the help of Janneke, fastened the cleats for the storage hatches under the bed with pipe rivets.
I have converted a c-clamp into a rivet tool. After that I used the traditional hammer and a counterweight.
Below are some pictures. Click once or twice to enlarge.
The tool and the rivets made from cupper piping by Janneke.
I am mixing NM-epoxy on my precision scale to 1/10 of a grams accuracy.
