Default Hand made metal buckets

This is a link to a video showing bucket production all by hand, I personally like the parts where they rivet and then crowning the bottoms by tuck shrinking.

I never thought of using hedge trimmers to cut sheet metal but it's evidently very effective.

The amazing thing is just how uniform the product is and how quickly they produce them.

Particularly the tuck shrinking of multiple parts at once, all the while holding down the stack by using the operator's feet...

Are the rivets piecing the metal through the nut before being peened flat?
Some times looks like the nut is not even used to do it?

The first guy that's riveting the side doesn't even use the nut trick he just drives them through and mashes the head....he's an expert.

The second guy still needs the nut till his hammer skills improve

The more you watch these guys the more impressive their skill sets become.

I think the first guy has a special purpose tool.

Both appear to place the rivet on the rail and under the part, tap the part to locate the rivet below. Then the tool would appear to have a hold drilled into its end, duplicating the nut, so as to cause the rivet to pierce the material when struck again.

The last blow forms the shop head of the rivet.

That's how I see it.

FWIW

Yup, that's somewhat different than how Peter showed us about wire edging and tuck shrinking at RockHillWill's shop in October.....

I bet one missed swing with that big hammer vs bare feet is all it takes to learn or limp onto the next career.

That is exactly what happens - the tool is called a rivet-set over here; its purpose being to close the gaps between the layers, before the rivet is upset. "Upset" means to increase the diameter of a bar,

Nice video
But the first thing that came to my mind was.... what if he misses with the hammer while is making the multiple bottom of the bucket! ... He would be walking funny for a while
