Getting the table ready for the riveting session

I put my steel angle on the edge of the work bench and held it in place with a couple of nails driven into the side of the work bench and bent them over the steel angle. I layed small sheet of 1/4 inch plywood on top of the work bench to make the elevator lay flat on the plywood and the steel angle while riveting. I also put a sheet of the tool box rubber stuff on top of the plywood to keep the elevator from moving while riveting the edge.
