    Re: need help with rivets

    heres what the rivets look like, approximately, after they were drilled out.

    they are stainless steel, the top is round like a button head screw with a tiny flat spot in the center. the bottom is totally flat, and sits flush with the silver reel foot that says shimano on it. i don't know anything about machine pressed rivets, but i do know that this reel was made in Japan, and is very high quality, which i seek duplicated.
