I asked once before .. but never really got a complete answer. I need a source and part number for the semi-tubular rivet used to secure the front bow to iron. I got solid ones but would rather use the hollow type.
Try these folks:
Right. But instead of guessing the grip range I’d like to hear from anyone who has actually ordered them from that source and found the right ones for this application.
Mark, as far as I know, the rivet is hollow only a little short of the materials to be riveted. Put another way, if your bows are 1" thick where they fit into the iron, the rivet will be solid for almost that 1" The hollow end is only to facilitate peening over the end without heavy hammer blows. typically such rivets are used where the material being riveted is prone to splitting, eg, wooden hood bows and brake linings.
Hope this helps.

LOL ... OK thanks Allan. Yup, I’ve used semi-tubular rivets ... just thought I’d ask rather than guesstimate. Hate to purchase and pay for post for almost the right hardware. Must be someone who has purchased these for a rebuild in the last year or two.
Mark: I have them, and used to sell them to Langs, but they opted for the solid ones which are not correct. If you need a set let me know how many you need. The roadster set is $2.25 plus shipping.
Larry .. thanks ... just sent you an email.
