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, gives a perfect rivet every time, and lets you pierce much further into your metal than a standard punch. Definitely a good investment!

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-hammered look, but it will give you an incredibly easy (and quiet) way to create professional-looking cold connections. If you plan to do a lot of riveting, this tool is well worth the initial investment.
