I needed an economical squeezer to dimple a small amount of holes on a RANS S-21 build. I didnt want to spend big money since there are only a few flush rivets on that kit. This is a simple design and sturdier than I expected. It got the job done quickly and precisely. I would buy again.

Item was just what I needed for my project, I had a question about adjustment before I bought. Got the answer and purchased the squeezer.

Nice tool but absolutely no instructions on use. Very poor for a person new to riveting.

Squeezer is good quality but does not come with dies The die set sold here will not close the gap for thin material.

Q: Does the 2" 12-01461 come with the 2" yoke or do I need to buy it separately?

Yes, this would come with the 2" yoke.

Q: Part # 12-01460: Does the 1 squeezer come with the 1 yoke or do I need to purchase that separately? Does 1 refer to the spread (opening) or the clearance (depth)?

The 12-01460 is sold with a 1" yoke included. It has a 1" depth clearance.

Q: I purchased this rivet squeezer, it came in with no paperwork or instructions of any kind, the description says its adjustable, how exactly do i adjust it?

The ram that holds one of the sets rotates to adjust the set up or down. New units may be a little stiff, and require a small pin, or nail, to make the first few turns.

Q: Is the yoke flush, or will it also accept a die into it?

Yes, it will accept a die.

Q: What is the longest rivet that it can squeeze?

The gap is roughly 1-1/4 so with the sets approx 3/4 long.
