After taking a workshop in traditional riveting (hammering wire through holes), I was amazed at how quickly this tool provides the same function. The appearance of the finished rivet is perfectly domed and smooth. This tool will not give you a hand-hammer

I was a little hesitant to spend the money on a tool to simplify something I can already do with a hammer. . .but I am so glad I did! Riveting has always been a little challenging for me, and this tool has totally removed my frustration. It's easy to use,
