Better way to Dimple

I was backriveting the skin on a 12″ x 12″ steel plate in the middle of a board and didn’t get good results, so I flipped the skin on the bulkhead and clamped it down.  I think this method is going to work a lot better, but I am going to have to get my wife to hold the bucking bar.

I wish I would have thought of doing it this way the first time.  I will have to remove some of the rivets that did not sit well on the backriveting plate.
