    In order to be sure, you should check carefully if you riveted correctly. If the rivet fails top mast will drop inside the lower.

    May just drill it out and do it over again

    So, everyone kept pushing me to use stainless here, but my understanding is that aluminum corrodes terribly when in contact with stainless. Now I'm back to my thought of drilling them all out and starting over with aluminum.

    Just got to my club and checked it. There isn't play. It just wiggles every so slightly, but nothing that would give me concern
