How To: Using the Close Quarters Dimple Die Set

While Mike was in Portland visiting us (Bill and Jensie) we asked him to show us how to use the Close Quarter Dimple Die Set. We were dimpling the skin of the horizontal stabilizer, and the punched holes for the nose rib closest to the leading edge, you have to open the skin quite far to get the C-Frame in. To alleviate the spreading/bending of the skin, Cleaveland Aircraft Tool offers a Close Quarters Dimple Die Set that uses a “Pop Rivet” Puller, copper and steel mandrel, and a male and female dimple die. See the video to learn how to use it!
