The firebox of the 98 727 has meanwhile arrived at the specialist store for welding. In the meantime, the riveting of the cab is also continuing in the workshop of the IB.
The rivets are first heated red-hot and then inserted into the pre-drilled holes. From one side, the pneumatic riveting hammer is placed on the rivet head, while from the other side it is held firmly against it. After the approximately 750 rivets, you no longer need a mucki pad!
