Part# 10-02065
MFR Model# RA825


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.

Best $38 I ever spent. The tool is easy to use and far more controlled than whacking something with a hammer. All 16 rivets in my recent pad replacement job were given a PERFECT roll set w/ zero defects. The several impact type rivet set tools I have are definitely now retired.

The Rapco RA825 rivet tool was used to remove and install the rivets used on Rapco RA66-105 Cleveland type brake linings used on a Cessna 172L. It was very easy to use at my hanger by hand without tools or a vise.

Bought this to reline brakes on my 39 Dodge. This device is first class! Worked perfectly to press out the old rivets and then worked easily and flawlessly to install the new rivets and brake linings. I could not have expected it to work any better! A great product! American Made!

I’m giving the 5 Stars for costumer service. I was very impressed on how fast the delivery was. I won’t be needing this for a while but everything was in the box. Great job.
