Stanley 6-MR100 All Steel Riveter Contractor Grade
Not as strong as you'd think
Bought one of these to do some 4mm rivets. Handles are too short to be able to carry out the rivets easily without straining yourself. Not sure this tool would be capable of the 5mm rivets claimed.
After managing to do 25 rivets or so one of the handles broke off.
If doing a lot of riveting I'd go for a better quality tool.

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.
