Still more left to do...

There are two flat head rivets that have to be put in that are hard to reach. Now I know why there are notches in the push-rod shaft of the squeezer. To get the rivet set up to the rivet, I had to put the rivet set into the yoke after it was put into position for the squeezing session. Then I had to use a small open end wrench to un-screw the squeezer shaft so it would move up into position for the final squeezing. This really takes a long time, but it works. One down, 3 more to go.
