    That cheesy shelf is resting entirely on the high quality Texas sourced rivets. The roll of carpet tape was just crammed in there today. There's a good 14-16 RCH clearance.

    I humbly stand corrected. I now see those 14 - 16 RCH. Is that metric in mm or skinches?

    Universal Standard or USCH utilizing the red scale of measurement=RCH. The shelf clearance measurement of 14-16 RCH was just an estimation as all that I have at hand anymore are grey or GCHs. Time marches on

    I suspect all those tins are empty!

    Good point, Bernhard!

    Anyone who uses pop rivet stems as darts, is devious to the core.

    That RCH clearance may be a Photoshop job as well.

    I may have to ride over to his place and do a "pop" inspection. He is not too far from me, at least not far after I get out of Texas!

    Guys, guys, guys. I worked in sales and hence I'm incapable of lying. These are NOT your everyday common run of the mill pop rivets. These two boxes were shipped from TEXAS! Now if that doesn't mean anything in todays world, then I guess that we are all doomed. Mediocrity will become the goal that we strive to achieve. "No, don't buy that Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, this nice beige Toyota Prius will get the job just as well."
