|Riveting - Course: Technique for Manual Working of Materials. Trainees' Handbook of Lessons|
A riveted connection can be undone only by destroying the rivet.
For this purpose, one rivet head has to be chiselled off by a flat chisel, and the rivet has to be driven out of the hole with the help of a drift pin.
Beware of splitting off rivet heads - put up a safety lattices or safety guards.
Rivets can be destroyed also by drilling or grinding-off of the rivet heads.
