Aileron rivets

Post by joerpilot » Wed Mar 18, 2015 20:15

The plans call for AN456AD3-3 rivets for the aileron balance. The only place i could find them is Univair and you know the rest of the story. They want $3.70 Each! Does anyone know of a reasonable source or an alternative rivet? I need about 60 rivets.

Use the AN470AD3-3 as a substitute. The 456 is a modified braiser head and would be a special order, the 470 is a universal head and substitutes for many of the older rivets.
