Re: Pneumatic Hammers for Rivetting and Caulking
Hand tools (Hammers) were replace by windy tools and then the Pneumatic hammer guns for revetting and caulking came later, but drilling was always done with windy tools. Yes there would be around 5-6 in a gang, 1 Heater, 1 thrower, 1 or 2 catchers (depending how far the work place) 1 riveter and 1 back holder. Hard work in anyones books. I few gangs were still around when I first started my apprenticeship.
