Mark,

Wow! I never knew you could buy high strength, stainless steel rivets! Thanks for a great tip!

I have always liked the idea of rivets better than screws in aluminum. Unless the threading is coarse, of course, or unless you'll need to remove them later.

I wish I understood stainless steel grading better. Does anyone know the advantage of 8-18 such as those rivets are made of vs 316?

Tom
