Phoney rivets reminds me of something that I heard over the weekend.

A local tourist railroad, the Wilmington and Western had a tender for one of their steamers that was nothing but a bunch of leaky patches, so they let out a contract to have a new body built.

The new piece was of welded construction and has cosmetic rivet heads spotwelded on the outside.

No, Si, Herb-o-Matic does NOT make a rivet press that robust!


Fix it again, Mr Gates--it still works!"
