The opening on the long reach riveting tool is 0.20" (5mm) taller than the standard riveting tool to accommodate taller / thicker pieces. Punch components used with the standard size tool and long reach tool are NOT interchangeable, with one exception: You can use long reach accessories in the standard size body. (Standard size accessories are too short to fit in the Long Reach body.)

Avg Rating: 10 /10
Long Reach rivet piercing/setting tool by Crafted Findings. Screw-action tool with two functions: one end pierces a 1/16" hole for the rivet and the other end flares/sets the 1/16"-diameter rivet. Pierces up to 12-gauge soft metals; do not use on steel thicker than 22 gauge. Includes 28-piece sample pack of 1/16" diameter semi-tubular rivets, hex key wrench (for installing different sizes of piercing and setting dies) and instructions. Made from heat-treated tool steel. Rivets items 0.5mm to 11mm (1/32" – 7/16") thick. When using rivets longer than 9/32" (5/16", 11/32", 3/8", 13/32", 7/16", 15/32"), use these Long Reach tools rather than the original height tool set.
This tool is wonderful for riveting. The rivets are small and very smooth when finished.
The Most Useful Riveting Tool
By Polly (Rings & Things Staff) on 4/22/2014
The 1/16" long-reach piercing/riveting tool is the most useful riveting base tool. It's about .25" taller than the original 1/16" riveting tool, which allows you to rivet a wider variety of jewelry creations.
