    Default New tool day, one I didnít know I needed.

    I was visiting a crop duster friend of mine, he was showing some of his work. I seen a tool I have never seen before a hole spacer for rivets.
    he walked over to the cabinet and handed me one, said he didnít need two. You expand and contract to get the hole spacing you want.
    Itís good to have good friends.

    Please post your results. That looks like a slick widget, but part of me thinks that after you get done aligning and marking it'd be almost as fast to get out the square and tape.

    Got mine 35 years ago. Used it thousands of times back when Indycar tubs and wings were aluminum sheet and the drivers were mostly crippled.
