French term or phrase: bouterolle
What is the English equivalent when the word is used to mean the following:

"Deux grands types existent : les rivets pleins et les rivets semi-forés. Ces derniers ont subi une étape supplémentaire lors de la fabrication avec la création d'un trou cylindrique plus ou moins profond sur la partie opposée à la tête. Le sertissage se faisant alors en retournant la paroi sur elle-même en formant une bouterolle."

"...formation d'un bouterolle par poinçonnage de l'extrémités du rivet..."

"...boutelrolle noyée dans un alésage OR dépassant la face externe..."

Thanks very much in advance!

"bouterolle" seems sometimes to be used for naming the "hat" of a rivet. At least in the description of their use.

I agree with Tony M that this is a bizarre use of the word here. But the source is the source. We need to find a translation.

Asker: Thanks for your help! I came the conclusion that in this particular context it was being used to refer to the "tail" of the rivet after it had been bucked. Thanks again!
