What tools do I use for use with Carinya Make-A-Brackets

Hi All - I would like to build a structure using Carinya Make-A-Brackets and just wondering what tools I should use to:

a: cut them to size

b: join different brackets together.


Would I be right in saying tinsnips for cutting and a pop rivet gun for joining? If so what size rivets should I use?

Thank you kindly 
Dave

Re: What tools do I use for use with Carinya Make-A-Brackets

Hey @Jason thank you for the warm welcome. 

I'm looking to build a diorama (approx 40cm X 30cm  X 40cm)  and as i'm currently stuck at home I can't go in-store to ask any questions so don't want to order the wrong tools.

Thanks heaps

Dave

No worries, thanks for the update @davidjono. Let me tag @MitchellMc for you so he can assist. 

 

Looking forward to seeing the diorama. It would be great if you could share it once finished as there's going to be many community members and visitors alike looking for project inspiration in the coming days and weeks. 

 

Stay well,

 

Jason

Welcome @davidjono, to the Workshop Community. Many thanks for your question, I'd be happy to answer it for you.

 

The necessary tools for your project would be some Aviation Snips and a Rivet Gun Set.

If you will be bending any angles you may like to consider a pair of Long Nose Pliers.   

 

Rivets similar to these Aluminium Blind Rivets would be suitable. I would advise picking up a packet of M5 Flat Washers, to ensure the rivets grip correctly.       

Please note the Rivet Gun Set has a small variety of rivets included. You may wish to purchase more to suit your project needs.

 

We will be very interested to see the progress and completion of your diorama, so please do keep us posted.

 

If there is anything else I can assist you with feel free to let me know. Thanks again for your question.

 

Mitchell
