The open face jig I posted in this link did not need welding & could be used with a BF hammer.
How'd you drill and tap the holes in the trunnion?I built this guy using only a hammer and a punch.

Looks good but I was really hoping to do my builds with rivets.you could do a screw build, and rivet later on if you decide to buy or come across someone with riveting equipment.
exactly!What GlenAvon said, but wanted to add, have a steel plate with a rivet head divot to rest the preformed rivet head in then use the modded punch on the other end.
Take a look at the link again, I have added mone info.Hi shotgunner, yeah I saw your jig, very nice looking setup. I guess I only took a quick look and did not realize it needed no welding. What is the steel piece that makes up the body of the jig from?
