Casey drills holes in mudring rivets

Mudring Rivets Get Drilled

Monday, April 29, 2002 by Martin Adams

Casey Cochran tries out ARPA’s recently acquired magnetic base drill, which was purchased with funds from recent fund raisers. The mag drill weighs about 90 pounds so Dennis Guyon helps Casey move the drill from rivet to rivet. It is then held in place by its electro magnet. The holes are required to ease the removal of the rivets.
