Tag Rivets?
« on: August 30, 2016, 08:06:29 pm »
You know the tag rivets that hold the tags onto the recoil and stuff. It has like a rounded head. How can I get those out and how can I like reattach the tag using those same rivets? I've got an S10 with the real old Stihl sign and want to restore the thing but I have no idea how to get the tags off.

I used new rivets that you could still buy new from stihl.   Never tried reusing them.

I have a bag full of those stihl cover metal grommets left over.  Never heard any call for those. 

Sure know one tore the heck out of a poly flywheel turning 15K.  Thinking that was what it was, memory fuzzy on that right now.

Never needed any since.
