RIVET vs SPOT/PLUG WELD vs "BOLTS" vs GLUE etc.

With the heated and often unsupported opinions expressed on this forum as to how best to fasten metal, I did a little research and found the following article. It is an interesting and easy to follow discussion of various ways to fasten metal parts together and hopefully will be an aide in choosing an appropriate fastening procedure for our varied needs. I was particularly interested to see which methods the authors considered "lite duty".
