    Default Where can I find rivets in Anch or Fairbanks

    I need 1/4" closed end blind rivets .126-.250 grip range for my 18' SSV Lund boat. The ones I found online all have outrages shipping rates to rural AK. Know of any stores in Anchorage or Fairbanks that sell these kinds of rivets that I can order from?
    TIA

    Stoddard's or Aviall in Anchorage should have something that will work for you.

    I think I picked mine up at Glacier Aircraft Parts at the Palmer Airport. Most of the aircraft parts businesses should have them.

    Thank you all for your input. I tried Aviall but, the biggest size they had was 1/8". They referred me over to Reeve Air Motive where they had the size I wanted. Thanks again.

    Default Ugghhh

    And they sent me the wrong size AND type of rivets. I specifically stated the size and type I needed multiple times over our phone conversation. I should've known something wasn't right when he tried selling me solid rivets.

    I would use a cherry max rivet before a pop style. Is this structural or are you just plugging leaking rivets holes?
