Happens to lots of people. Be careful using a c-frame dimpling, as this and a slight amount of dimplingitis, caused me to make the same mistake. Take the extra 0.5s to ensure the male die is in the right place & save yourself the hassle of a repair.

Or, get yourself a DRDT-2.

Guilty of that too. Fixed it the same way as well. I also took a file and emory cloth to my dimple 8 and to make sure the edges were smooth again. My extra dimple literally tore the aluminum and needed some TLC after that beating.

Good timing! If you come to the shop every day for couple hours and rivet all weekends the wings are done in 100 days. Start saving for a fuse deposit.
