I finally riveted the second rivet today. there were two attempts at using a center punch to make the holes in the rings that had failed before I finally decided to use the jewelry drill press.

the center punch squished the brass out from the center of the hole, and I had to keep trying to hammer from one side and then the other many times. these are the two rings to the left. they ended up rather mangled. the ring on the far right has the hole drilled with a tiny drill bit.

besides the riveted ring, I also dipped and scratched on 60 scales today.
