If you want the best riveting system ever then don't look any further than this one! I bought one when attending one of Robert's classes at Rings & Things and have used it incessantly since then! LOVE IT!!!

Great Tool, BUT

by Vinnie| 3/11/2020 0:00:00

I wouldn't order from Rings & Things again. I received the tool, but the automatic punch that comes with it was disassembled. Robert Lopez assures me he sent them to Rings and Things assembled. No instructions as to how to reassemble the tool. Ordered this in Nov, still trying to work with designer on how to reassemble the punch. Poor packaging! The tool is awesome and will be a great help, once I get the punch assembled. [R & T reply: Hi Vinnie, we are very sorry that your tool was received unassembled. I have no idea how or why that happened, but I'll have someone check the rest to make sure they are all still assembled. ~Polly, Rings & Things]

I was able to speak with Robert about his tool and my punch is now assembled! Next time I’ll order directly from him. Great guy! [R&T Reply: We agree that Robert is a great guy, and we're very excited that he's teaching another workshop for us in Spokane this summer (2020). I'm so glad that he was able to help you, and again I apologize that your riveting system wasn't assembled when you received it. ~Polly, Rings & Things]
