Air tools are amazing!

Y'all probably knew this one already. But, maybe the people young or new like me could learn a thing or two.

I hammered and chiseled probably 1000 rivets by myself at first for the interior. When I got to removing a lot of rivets from the exterior a $20 air hammer from HF sliced through like butter on the rivets.
Can't believe some people on here told me that I should just get by the old fashioned way. Oh well
Time>money even to a broke guy like me!

I used to cringe when nat would go on about how air tools were the scourge of the earth. Good riddance!

Why anyone would want to manually hammer and chisel the rivets, I'll never know.
BTW- my stepdad hasn't been available for the steel price. Monday, I promise!

eh.. I liked the guy. He was a practical thinker, though occasionally abrasive.

Pro Nat guy here: I look over his advise and love his "my way is the best way" method of going about things, makes it very easy to be decisive when he narrows down the vast array of options down to his singular approach. I'm bummed he stooped using this site around the time I started.

From a distance his abbrasiveness always cracks me up, every time I see a crown I giggle about his crown circle jerk comment he brought up in someones thread. He's not always right (like his views towards grounding in the RV electrical systems thread), but I really appreciate everything he's contributed to the site. I think he's a very knowledgeable person and I am glad to hear he's in good health down in Florida. I was concerned that he might've gotten sick from burning poop, disappeared to Papa his newborn or something something.. I do hope he updates his 4 seasons prime build thread.

But I didn't come here to kiss Nat butt, I came here to agree.

Air tools are awesome!
