|A high-quality tool designed for use in the installation and removal of tubular brass or steel brake lining rivets, 5/32 of an inch in diameter. Recognized by professionals, this screw type set allows controlled pressure for a proper flare. This reduces the chance of cracking not only the rivet but also of the lining material. It also helps avoid the costly warping of brake assembly back plates and pressure plates, often associated with using the hammer type method. The RAPCO rivet tool is designed to be mounted in a vise or can be handheld. Packaged in a reusable case the RA825 is a quality tool for a professional job. Maximum set travel 1 inch. Maximum working area 1 1/4 inch.|
I ordered this Rapco brake lining tool based on the customer testimonials and watching a few YouTube videos. There was available another brand unit a little cheaper however went with a conclusion based on this and the fact that I was about to install some Rapco brake parts. Good choice, easy to use and it comes in itâ€™s own little storage box.
One of my favorite tool purchases ever. Made removing and installing the brake rivets such a snap I wish I had more to do.
Absolutely fantastic tool for removal AND installation of brass rivets in brake linings. Definitely the right tool for the job. Makes brake jobs on Cleveland wheels a piece of cake. Can be used hand-held or in a vise. Highly recommend.
Exactly as advertised, very fast shipping
