Removing a Rivet


I assembled some aluminum tubing with EZ Pull Rivets.

Anyone know how can I remove them?

I can't access the underside/backside of the rivet, since its inside the hollow aluminum tubing.

I think they are 3/16" long type.

Drill it out with the same size bit that you used for the rivet.

Once you drill it out, however, the waste will be inside the tube, so if you can't access it, it will rattle around for eternity.
