    Would anyone know the correct name of these brackets..

    I like the look of brackets and rivets, was interested in the history behind it.

    Why were things made with rivets? was it just pre welding...

    Google "Gusset Brackets" (It's important to include the word "brackets")

    Rivet construction carried on way beyond the period when welding procedures were developed as it took some decades before acceptable testing procedures could be relied on.

    Just look up Liberty ships for why rivets might have been preferred to welding . . .

    That hot rivet process looks class, can it be done on a smaller scale, like hobbyist shop?
