KW transformer whistle switch rivet removal
Posted by Grafton RR on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 12:13 PM

I have a Lionel KW transformer on which I need to repair a contact on the "B" side whistle switch. I need to remove the swtch to make the repair, but am not sure how to remove the switch rivet. Is anyone able to advise me as to how to remove the switch rivet? Thanks!

The rivet would have to be carefully drilled out. A new rivet would need to be inserted and peened over.

Brasseur Trains has replacement rivets, part #20-69
