Rivets

#1

Post by thepigstye » Fri Dec 10, 2010 3:56 am

Been looking for 2 hours for rivets that are used to hold on data plates on various parts. I searched "drive in rivets", "knock in rivets", "hammer in rivets", "data plate rivets" etc. No luck. I guess I need to know what the "industry standard" name for these rivets are. They are a round head, steel rivet that have spirals running down the shank. Used to hold data plates on magnetos, generators, etc. Can any one help me before I pull what little bit of hair I have left on my head, out?
Thanks
Mutt

Mutt...

The GE-700-T700 and the T701 aircraft engines used on UH-60 and AH-64 helicopters that I work on has those rivets on the engine's front frames and other parts located on the engine.

I will look in the engine parts TM (Technical Manual) when I get to work today and look up the part number and NSN, and then try and get any information from the FEDLOG Data center on where to get them.

forgot to mention that the industry standard name for those things is DRIVE SCREW, not rivet. This place has any size you need:

Thanks Mike. I checked out Hanson last night, but not knowing what they were called, I probably never could find them. That's what I was looking for.
