I think he specialised in bottom plate work but that is only by what my G/F said to my Uncle in later life.
I had wondered when the Pneumatic tools became available.
They were patented in the USA in 1893.
Pneumatic Drills were invented in 1871.
I suppose that the Rivetting tools would soon been adopted in U.K. but say by 1900 or maybe sooner.
Then my G. G/F would have switched over from hand tools for his squads of which I think there were 2 or 3. Mind I could be adding 2+2 and making 5!
