    I don't know the exact nomenclature but the rivets F12 uses are different 
than the ones you get at the hardware store. As I recall, they are the kind 
where the mandrel pulls out; on the common ones from the hardware store you 
just break the mandrel off. I don't know any of the mechanical differences 
but Tom definitely made a choice to use them and not the common variety.
