Will do on the 5200, thanks for the tip. It seems we have too much in common: that may be worrying! My last Triumph restoration was a 1961 TR6.
Sold it 10+ years ago and wish I had not.
BTW, I have only been to Cleveland once to attend a seminar at Lincoln. I used to work for David Lincoln.
Lincoln Electric... lifetime job for most people.
You aren't missing anything by only being to Cleveland once... except the Lake, it is great, really great boating...
I never had the expertise with the pre-units, it takes a bit more talent to restore one of those, they bring a pretty big buck and aren't they handsome?
I miss my classic bikes but I still have a Triumph in my garage, 99 Daytona.
Triumph... What a great name for a motorcycle company! I will ALWAYS have a soft spot in my heart for a nice looking British classic bike. I was never a fan of the American brand, they have just never done anything for me.
I digress, anyhow the 5200 will work very well (use it liberally in the hole) and for the life of me, I don't know how I forgot about Aircraft Spruce, I pop a deck rivet loose once in a while and I know they have the perfect solution compared to the automotive rivets I used on my deck, thanks for that.

Washers just arrived. Excellent quality, no burrs, and shiny. Also they are very slightly dished so will seat down well. Just perfect for spreading tension onto f/glass. Gonna buy some more to have around.

If you could, put up some pics of the finished job, I'd like to see how it looks, I might have use for them myself.
Shortly I'll be resuming work on my own boat, chomping at the bit!
