Works as its supposed to and is high quality. With the drill bits being cheap to replace as needed the body of this tool will last indefinitely if cared for.

Having to do some repairs on a part requiring the removal of many rivets. This little tool makes it a snap. Easy to use (once I found video instructions on the web) and took out the rivets with a scratch on the surface. Highly recommend for the builder!
