Rivetters

Here you can see photographs and hear memories of Rivetters made by Fielding and Platt.

Rivetters were used to join metal sheets with hot steel rivets by the exertion of hydraulic or pneumatic pressure.  They were used in boiler and ship construction.

If you remember designing, machining, fitting, installing or maintaining any of the presses here please share your memories of working on them. You can do this by clicking on the machine you worked on, scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on the words Add a comment about this page.
