what 1/8 grips mean and which rivets are better; steel or aluminium?
I'm not sure but I think thats what I said a while back. Heres some pics to help you understand better.
The diameter has to be 1/8" so its a nice fit in the holes already in the case. eg. the rivets your take out are in 1/8" holes.
The Grip measurements show how long the knob will be when its been compressed with the rivet gun. (See the second pic.) A smaller grip is better for PC cases as there is less of a knob when compressed.
I used the rivets in the last picture. They have a grip of 3.2 - 4.8mm and I ended up with a 4mm knob as I'm showing.
These are the rivets I used. DEFINATELY get aluminium. They are much easier to use and there is absolutely no need for the strength of steel and you will never be able to bore the steel ones out unless you use a special cutting fluid. Just don't even go there.
Painted obviously just means the rivet head has been painted. I used a painted black rivet as you can see but a painted rivet is not nessesery at all.
In a nutshell, get rivets with 1/8" diameter, a grip of NO more then 4.8mm at the most and definatelly get aluminium rivets.
I don't think I could have explained it any better that time.
Now who thinks I over explain?
EDIT - honestly thought I had the first post on 400 then... oh well.Edited by FalloutBoy - 1/3/10 at 6:39am
