Pop rivet sizes

This is something that's been bothering me a little bit. I searched for some info first but could find any.

Does anyone know where one can find a chart showing what pop rivet sizes/lengths to use depending on the material thickness to be riveted?

I would look into aircraft sheet metal and repair handbooks as there are strict standards for the use of blind rivets in aircraft repair..we had specific info on what we could do and not do in aircraft damage repair but that has been a bunch of years ago since I did any of that sort of thing..

That would be a place to start anyway..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

try this link http://www.spenceraircraft.com/catal...rence/pg48.htm for closed head rivets and http://www.spenceraircraft.com/catal...rence/pg45.htm for open head rivets. This other link was easier to understand though, http://www.huck.com/marsoncorp/Types.htm . Hope you find what you need!
