The Original Brakeman's Riveter and Four-Piece Backing Post Set
The above illustrations show how the Four Piece Backing Post Set is used with the Original Brakeman's Riveter. Picture (1) shows how to rivet a knuckle coupler. Picture (2) shows how to rivet a sliding shoe and in Picture (3), riveting an armature spring. The set includes one base (1¼ x 2 inches) with a hole to attach any of the various backing posts that we offer. The hole is placed close to one edge for easy access, and there is enough space on the opposite side to secure the base to a table with a small C-clamp. Or, you can secure the base with screws through the two smaller holes located at opposite corners. Attachments are secured to the base by tightening a small set screw (wrench included).
