  1. Just made the same repair, credit to your page – thanx 🙂 .. do you have any knowledge of whether this repair will stand the test of time and usage?

    • Not sure – I kinda lost touch with that friend. The theory is sound – I’d say that the force is transferred much more to the the flat “strap” than the internal bolt, so I imagine you’d bend or tear the strap before anything else. Which you’d do with the original rivet.
