They do this because their rivets may not work right if they are put into applications where the hole size is the thickness of a human hair too big. Yes, the blueprint specifications do spell out accurate hole sizes with little if any tolerance. In fact, for a conventional 1/8″ pop type rivet the application hole size specification is 0.129 to 0.133 inches. That’s a total of 0.004 thousands of an inch which is about the size of a single human hair. Imagine buying rivets from someone other than aDP Rivet and you ask them why their rivets pull through and leave you with a sharp nail sticking out.
