Stanley 6-MR100 All Steel Riveter Contractor Grade
Very strong tool small handels
I bought this after breaking 2 riveters with heads made from bent sheet steel. This tool is solid, I can't see how it could break especially since the handels are a full inch shorter than the ones on the tools I broke. The handels could do with being a bit longer for strong 4.8mm rivets. Great for cheap soft ally rivets.

Not what I expected
The riveter it is claimed will handle rivets down to 2mm. the one I bought from Screwfix will take 3.2mm or smaller. The teeth on the collet will not grip.

Well built rivet gun, easy to use and the long handles provide plenty of leverage to fix the rivet. It's a pity there is no holder for the supplied spanner. The exchangeable nozzle took a lot of force to remove it the first time but after that it was easy.

Isn't what it says on the tin
Ha! Rubbish, the "All Steel Riveter" is made of, er, well Mazak actually. Its like buying beef and getting lettuce. It ain't the same. Two seconds with a magnet proved that its some sort of ally. Poor and misleading description which is against the Trading Standards act by the way. In addition when using anything but light rivets its almost impossible to squeeze the handles together. Just to round things off my "All Steel Riveter" does not have a function to store it shut. Its going back tomorrow. Thanks that Screwfix are honest enough to allow me to post such a negative feedback. I will deal again with Screwfix.
