Sorry...I just mentioned one of the things that's been known to honk off even the Holy Father, but I've needed some rather expensive door window motors and junkyards and me are on a first name basis.  The problem with harvesting parts that are riveted from a junkyard is more than "hey, you got a 6 point 10 mm socket I could borrow?"  So how do you remove a rivet easily when you have no access to power for a Dremel.  Yes, I know, battery operated drills are available, but wouldn't it just be easier if Ford or BMW to bolt them on instead of riveting?  I was just venting, and Rick was just commiserating.

A chassis reamer works to get rivets out at a junkyard. I use a chassis reamer primarily to make holes for switches and lights on one-off electronic projects. It works quickly on rivet removal too, at the junkyard.

While I love tools, I wasn't aware of these. Reading over the specifications of exact what reamers do, it makes sense to have a set, even if you're not using them for car stuff. All to often I've relied on drill bits to do the job, and they do that rather questionably. No wonder I've broken bits trying to get them to do what they weren't designed for. I trust, these aren't the same as "E-Z Outs" a set of bits of increasing size used to remove broken studs out of cylinder blocks (first used on a 1973 Ford Pinto). Used occasionally, but I never thought of them for rivet removal. Granted, this is off-the-topic for supercharger maintenance, but hopefully someone else stumbles on this and finds it interesting. You can PM me on "E-Z Outs" and whether they'd work.

Yeah... seven bucks at amazon, three bucks at harbor freight, keep it in a baggie or pouch so it does not get dull from knocking around (not used much) in the toolbox. Makes *very* short work of those rivets. See https://www.amazon.com/Jameco-Benchpro-THR1-R-Components-Diameter/dp/B00B889BVM/ref=sr_1_2. Mine is old, my dad gave it to me when I was in middle school, my hobby then (and now) is electronics.

These are not and will not work as ez-outs.

For the rest of you - search eBay or Amazon or Harbor Freight for "handle reamer" they are not hiding.
