    Cool riveted

    Hi,

    Can the word "riveted" be synonym of "screwed"?

    Watch the following passage:

    ... making it more stable and lighter than riveted panels of aluminum used by other commercial jets. (from CNN).

    Re: riveted

    Not really in that rivets and screws are not themselves identical or synonymous.
