Rated 4 out of 5Â by Chickensharon Useful tool
Used this for doing upholstery on a folding camper. My son used it, I think it would be too hard for my hands as needed a lot of strength. The used rivets often had to be removed from tool with pliers. Overall very pleased, an improvement on the old pair we had, and it takes various sizes.

I purchased this because I though the twisting head might come in handy sometimes.
However under standard operation this riveter requires a lot more strength to operate than others that I've used.
It feel sturdy and does it's job - but you will need strong hands!

This really is useless, I only managed to do one rivet and could not do a second.
The problem is the metal is to soft so the main pin bends and sides elongate. It might be OK on smaller rivets but the 4.8mm I was using was to much for it.
The twisting head would be useful if the riveter worked.

This is an absolute piece of junk that lasted exactly 4 rivets before refusing to set anymore......... despite my best efforts. Maybe OK for DIY'ers but if it's to help earn your living forget it. I only used it because my son bought one and my original CK had broken after 18 years. Stay well clear.
