Rated 5 out of 5Â by Beercan Better than cheaper options
So it costs Â£10 - Â£15 more than the Forge Steel alternatives and I bought this after one of those failed miserably. It did however highlight to me just how good this riveter is in comparison. It operates with one hand and has an optional spring to reset and eject the spent rivet.
I did need to loosen off the nut on the back a lot to get it to eject them easily.
Also be warned the different heads in the body are very tight and the tiny supplied spanner was barely capable of undoing them the first time.
This riveter sped through the remainder of the job that the Forge Steel failed to complete. Overall, a great product and highly recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Apprentical Of no use to me
I would give this product zero stars if that were an option because I could not make it work. I am not a body builder but I am not a weedy person either. I bought this rivet gun to do a small job with a couple of 5mm rivets. I could not get sufficient purchase or power on the arms of the gun to break the rivet from the pin despite repeated efforts. As a test I tried to pop the smallest diameter rivet and was able to break it but not cleanly and a piece remained stuck in the barrel breaking the product.
Screwfix gave me a refund without question which is appreciated. But I'm motivated to write a review so others are aware of the limitations of this device.
I was fortunate that my job was portable so took it to a blacksmith who sorted it in a couple of minutes, for a reasonable fee much less than the price of this gun.
I did read some reviews of the product before I bought it but didn't scroll down as far as some of the negative ones saying the same as me now.
