    Zeno, I have a personal preference for Cherry. Easy to pull, and I get them for free from a local helicopter manufacturer!

    I also love driving rivets! Fast, cheap, easy.

    Just don't use the Home Depot ones for anything but temporary jig building.

    Any of the blind rivets that retain the mandrel in the shear plane will do a good job for you. Do use something with a proper grip range for your job.

    Cherry rivets

    If I don't get them for free, are cherry rivets still better than Avex?

    Aren't the Avex rivets that the 601's and 701's use have a lower head height or something?
